Since first opening our doors in 2000, we have been a cornerstone of our community. Serving more than 1,500 youth each year through clubhouses in Vero Beach, Fellsmere, and Sebastian, we are within a school bus ride of every child in the county.
Our mission is a critical one...to inspire and enable all young people,
especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens.
We provide quality after-school and summer programs to youth between the ages of six and eighteen years old. Our programs focus on six core program areas that promote the positive devlopment of youth. Learn more about them here.
