Program Information and Hours: During the school year the Youth Center is a safe and secure drop-in program; you can relax with friends, play ping-pong or pool, watch TV, read and do homework, play PS4 games, and utilize the large computer lab. Daily hours throughout the school year are: Monday – Friday, 2:00pm – 6:00pm. During the summer we hosted our annual Summer Camp during the hours of 8:00am-5:30pm. The Youth Center is closed on Saturday & Sunday.

Road to Success Program: We have reached 225 GEDs earned to date with a 97% success rate. Currently we have student internships at the Flagler Youth Center and East Coast Gym and our students earned Food handlers ServSafe credentials. This past month we hosted workshops for Army recruiters, Flagler Technical Institute, resume writing, and we hosted a field trip to Career Source Flagler Volusia.
