Field Trips
Once a month, participants of the Youth Center will go on field trips to different venues that are both educational and fun. Community service activities will also be included, aimed to enrich participants with the opportunity to have a positive effect in their community.

Life Skills Seminars & Workshops
It’s not just fun and games; the Youth Center aims to positively influence its participants in many aspects of their lives. In hopes to create more well-rounded youth, the youth center will host seminars designed to educate our youth in everyday activities such as banking, budgeting, nutrition, and job preparation skills like how to write a successful resume.

Youth Center Council
The Youth Council will be comprised of "The Spot" participants who wish to help “govern” the Youth Center internally. The Youth Council will provide participants with opportunities to assume leadership roles while building valuable skills. The Youth Council will meet monthly to discuss the overall progress of the Youth Center from the participant’s perspective, and discuss ideas for Open Hang night themes, field trip locations and future programming.

Community Service
The Youth Center will give ample opportunities for its participants to engage in meaningful and helpful community service work. Community service happenings will provide participants the ability to earn community service hours needed for graduation, while learning the true value of teamwork and fellowship.
 

Monthly Prizes and Punch Card
To provide a variety of incentives for those who frequently attend and participate in Youth Center activities, a punch card system will be in place to keep track of attendance and points earned for excelling in different programs. At the end of each month, those individuals with the most punches on their cards will receive prizes.
