What does PVYC do?

Our goal is to give students in our community an environment where they can thrive.

We provide students a fun environment where they can play games, join in physical activity, hang out with their friends and have fun. Our programs and events are either free or at a very minimal cost to the teens and their families and this is because of our generous donors and sponsors.

 After School Program (K-5)

Friday ~ 3pm-6pm

Each Friday, younger students are invited to build healthy relationships by participating in fun and rewarding activities. Highly programmed, this period includes a snack-time, fitness activity, team-building and games; learning enrichment activities such as workshops, STEM and more; crafts and artistic expression and occasional field trips. This program requires prior registration. Please contact anne@pvyouthcenter.com for more information. This program is funded by the State of Hope Foundation.

 After School Program (6-12)

Monday through Thursday ~ 3:30pm-6pm

An important aspect of the After School Program is the tutoring and homework help. We provide skilled and qualified tutors to help students raise grades and also become more engaged and motivated to complete assignments. We are developing a tutoring  program that creates a communication and support circle between the school, the family, and the After School Program. We believe that a student’s family is the most influential part of their education and we want to provide the tools and support necessary for families to succeed.

  • Healthy Snacks
  • Physical Activity/Games

 Thursday Meals (6-12)

Every Thursday at 6:30pm we share a meal and since 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. If you want to practice your culinary expertise and bless some students with your talents, please contact us!

 Youth Group (6-12)

Each Thursday after dinner we host certain events specific to aspects of our faith. We do this by focusing on a different aspect of growth each week of the month. These include building teamwork, learning to experience worship of God, how to communicate with Him, and connect with others.

 Fellowship of Christian Athletes (6-12)

FCA or Fellowship of Christian Athletes meets at PV High School, Fridays at 7:05am during the school year.

There’s More…

 Counseling

We want to provide students with the opportunity to sit down with local counselors to deal with trauma they have experienced and/or learn to cope with the struggles they face. Each session is fully funded by PVYC and includes both individual and family therapy opportunities.
