July FYI Newsletter
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 – 7:00pm. 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.
Director’s Message: Summer Camp is off to a HOT start here at the Youth Center! The campers are having a great time hanging out at the Youth Center and enjoying games, movies, and making new friends as well as enjoying trips to Daytona Lagoon, the movies, bowling, and Universal Studios! July is looking to be just as exciting with four more weeks of camp and additional trips planned to IMAX Theater to see Spiderman: Far from home, Hangar 15, and Typhoon Lagoon! Camp will conclude at the end of this month, on July 26th to give the campers a few weeks to rest before returning to school for the 2019-2020 school year!
Friday Nights Done Right: The Flagler Sheriff’s PAL and the Focus on Flagler Youth Coalition have teamed up to bring Friday Nights Done Right to the Carver Community Center in Bunnell! Friday Nights Done Right is a free event for Flagler Youth on the second Friday of every month. This event is designed to give our youth something fun and positive to do on a Friday night. Stop in for games, free pizza, snacks and sodas on Friday July 12th from 6-8 pm!
Road to Success Program: The RTS Youth Program has reached 206 GEDs to-date, with a 97% success rate. This month we have student interns working at Flagler Youth Center, Southern Insurance Associates, Flagler Humane Society and East Coast GYM in Bunnell.
Recently students completed resume writing, a field trip to Hanger 15, completed Graduation pictures, 50 students were eligible to walk at FTI’s graduation ceremony on June 12th, Wells Fargo conducted financial and banking workshops, and worked one on one with DSC representatives.
