Program Description

  Youth Development

The Youth Development team uses recreation to ensure young people are healthy, connected, and productive during out-of-school time. Program staff work to change the landscape of communities by tackling pressing and diverse issues, reducing barriers to participation, and improving equitable access to high quality out-of-school time opportunities which improve outcomes for young people. Positive youth development strategies are used to meet youth where they are and include opportunities, programs, and services which emphasize active and healthy living, youth leadership and social equity, engagement in learning, workforce readiness, and connection to caring adult role models.
