YFC provides an after-school program during the week and a summer program throughout June, July, and early August. Youth receive academic support, mentoring, as well as opportunities to engage in positive recreational activities and service projects. By doing so, we ensure that at-risk youth have a safe place to receive academic and social development support. 

YFC collaborates with local school districts, both traditional and non-traditional community support and service organizations in an effort to provide a continuum of care and to maximize service potential.
