Our mission is to provide a safe, structured and nurturing environment that encourages responsible behavior, respect for others and a positive outlook.

The JCA Youth Services department offers many classes and programs for those in kindergarten through twelfth grade as well as activities for the entire family. Our programs provide social, volunteer and educational components to give your child a place to learn and grow.

Within Youth Services at the JCA, we see ourselves as facilitators of each child’s development. We seek to develop a positive after school experience for your child so that they can better their future. Even when children are not in school, it is important to continue developing social, emotional, cognitive and physical skills, and promote character building.
