The Youth Center at St. James

The Youth Center at St. James offers a variety of academic and recreational programs to fit your childs interests and engage them in fun, enriching activities. Our program offers a wide range of things to do from arts and crafts, organized indoor/outdoor sports, games, to designated homework time. These many programs are led by our Youth Counselors which allow for a safe and fun environment. We aim to encourage teamwork, inspire creativity and support individuality. Students can suggest and participate in leading new activities.

Academic Enrichment

The Youth Center facilitates a study period for all students to not only finish their homework, but also 
ask for help from our volunteer high school students and staff. This time is useful for those students who 
may need to work in groups for projects or those who need help that may not be available at home. 
Accessible to the students is our computer center. These computers are prioritized for academic use.
Recreational Activities

We have many resources for recreation for the students to 
utilize during their time at the Youth Center. 

Many of these activities include but are not limited to:

- Arts and crafts (construction paper, paint, yarn for knitting, fuse beads and more!)
- Board Games (Monopoly, Scattergories, Life, Clue, playing cards and more!)
- Table games (Ping Pong, Pool, Air hockey, Foosball)
- Outdoor Sports (Basketball, Dodgeball, Street Hockey, Frisbee, Jump Rope, and more!)

In addition to everything listed above, we also aim to provide activities and games to challenge and bring students together to expand their skills while having fun. Some of these activities include, but again are not limited to:

- Cooking 
- Staff led crafts
- Organized sports (Capture the Flag, Indoor Bowling, Indoor Dodgeball)
- Performing arts opportunities
Getting to the Youth Center

We are located about ten minutes by foot from the middle school. Every day two staff members will escort the students from the school campus back to the Youth Center. The students are responsible for arriving on time at the front of the school and signing in with the Youth Counselors. We encourage students to keep the Youth Center phone number in their phones or backpacks in case they are running late. (626) 799-6266
