Arthur Youth Center

At the Y, we know what kids like. Our Youth Centers, for kids six to nine, offers a variety of activities that support academics and healthy living. Youth can receive assistance with homework or be tutored, play virtual reality games requiring participants to use their body to engage in what’s happening on the screen, keeping them active, a variety of critical thinking games, an art space, organized STEM learning activities, and a reading library and space.  In the Youth Center, kids also learn teamwork, sportsmanship and valuable social skills that will serve them well throughout their lives.
