From the Director
Hello! I’m Darren Narber and this is my wife, Anne. On behalf of the staff and volunteers of the Penns Valley Youth Center, I want to welcome you! PVYC is a place where all students are welcome to come hang out, be themselves, and discover the meaning of hope, worth and friendship. This is a safe place to discover, grow and refine who you are and to become the person you were meant to be. Consider checking out our calendar, getting plugged in, and making PVYC part of your story that is being written each week! We hope you will join us!
”Our Mission at the Penns Valley Youth Center is to provide students and families in the community with hope, worth and friendship. We provide a fun and safe environment in order to encourage healthy habits and promote wise choices.”
Wednesdays for grades 6-12 and TBD for K-5th Stop by for Snacks, Games, Homework Help, Gym Time, Workshops, and Tutoring
Providing students the opportunity to thrive. These sessions are fully funded by PVYC and includes both individual and family therapy opportunities with local counselors.
We’re all friends here, so that’s how we do dinner. Sit down with us each week to laugh, share stories, and eat great food made by people in our community.
Each Wednesday we host certain events specific to aspects of our faith including building teamwork, learning to experience worship of God, how to communicate with Him, and connect with others.
As a Township Supervisor, and someone active in the programs of the Old Gregg School Community Center, I have had the opportunity to see first hand the growth and continual expansion of the benefits to the youth of our township and throughout Penns Valley resulting from the Penns Valley Youth Center.
We would like to thank you for the leadership, guidance, and love you provided to our son, Dristen, during ServeCamp. He has truly enjoyed his time with PVYC since he started attending last year. He has made new friends and found new mentors, and for this his father and I are truly grateful for all of you. ServeCamp is a great experience for all kids.
PVYC is a part of my family. It’s a place where teenagers can come and go through life together. It’s cool because we meet new people every week and I have made so many friends through the Youth Center. I am able to help them through their struggles and they can help me with mine. The Penns Valley Youth Center is our home. We are a family.
