“So every child can reach their greatest potential!”
To provide a positive, affordable and safe place for youth and those organizations which seek to help young people develop into physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually healthy adults.
For many years there has been a desire to see children and teens in the Mid-Columbia reach their greatest potential through a community youth center. This facility has been designed to serve the entire community with the emphasis on children and family.
Children and teenagers alike will be able to choose from a variety of activities including sports, music, art, drama, computers, and learning life skills.
The Gorge Youth Center will be more than just a place to hangout but will be designed to develop youth into well rounded adults, creating opportunities to enrich every aspect of their lives;
Physically – with sports and recreation activities in the gymnasium and fieldhouse while providing healthy meals and a garden.
Intellectually – through after-school programs assisting with homework, computer and multimedia labs through the arts and leadership development and job training, along with assisting them to become goal oriented in their lives.
Emotionally – by building relationships with caring adults to mentor them through temptations or problems, and through onsite counselors.
Spiritually – through faith-based groups.
