Thank you! Thank you! THANK YOU to everyone who works at the Youth Center. My daughter loves Music Classes. She always wanted to play a musical instrument but was afraid to fail. She decided to play saxophone this year. She met new friends, and now can play a few songs on saxophone! She is so happy about it and very proud of her achievement. I just want to tell thank you to all everyone who helps with Music Program. It's very affordable, doesn't require private classes and her instructor is ridiculously good! Thank you for making my daughter have more confidence and new friends. I am telling all my friends about your music program.
As an active board member for just a little over a year, I have to say it has been an incredible experience being a part of The Youth Center. I serve on a few of the board committees and it gives me insight to all the different areas that we are constantly improving and growing to better our programs, to make our board stronger and find ways to further serve our local community. Whenever we have an event where you hear the kids speak about how The Youth Center has impacted their lives and their families, you can't help but feel it touch your heart and be extremely proud of them and knowing you had a part in making that happen. The Youth Center equips our children with so much, whether it keeps them off the streets and out of trouble, helps them with challenges of school, or provides a place for them to foster new friendships, it is no doubt a special place that they will forever remember later in life. The Youth Center creates a foundation and environment to allow kids to grow in a safe place and become empowered with the skills they need to start off with in the real world. From a board member perspective, I have never been more proud to serve on a board of such amazing and giving whom I can call friends. Our strengths lie in pulling our gifts and resources together and we collaborate in such an effective way that strongly supports the staff and the programs they put together. The Youth Center is such an amazing example of one of the best nonprofits that I have ever had involvement with and I cannot express the gratitude and pride I have for this organization.
I Volunteered at the camp and learned how to deal with little kids. I enjoyed serving the community for Los Al.
A mainstay in Los Alamitos and surrounding communities. Excellent staff help our youth increase their self-esteem and become productive citizens. The wide variety of programs offer our youth many opportunities to thrive and flourish.
I have been going to the Youth Center Teen Camp since i was 12, the youngest you can be in teen camp, and it is so much fun! The leader is updated on the new trends and knows what we like. In teen camp, he lets us do what we want because its our summer-as he says. We go somewhere everyday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and those 6 hours are packed with excitement and summer fun! I highly recommend this camp to anyone in age of 12+.
I have volunteered at Los Alamitos Youth Center for over a year and I hope to do so for many more years to come. The After School Program is an energetic, fun, and happy place. The staff keeps a watchful eye on the kids and still have fun interacting with them. The Music Program is excellent and the kids love it. The Executive Director is hard working and dedicated to helping children. Every child should have the opportunity to belong to a Youth Group like The Youth Center.
We go on field trips twice a week and have several activities during camp hours. Most of the kids are great and we all have a fun time.
My grandchildren go to the After Scholl Program and they love it. There is so much to do and experience. I love it because they have staff and a computer room to help with their homework. The staff is friendly and helpful and ever watchful. Both parents work, so I am in charge of the children and it is a big help to me especially at my age. I just can't thank them enough.
Both of my sons attended The Youth Center right after they got out of Middle School. The Youth Center is conveniently located next to the school. My wife and I both worked and The Youth Center was a life saver for us. We knew they were in a safe environment where they could either do their homework or just socialize with their friends in a safe supervised environment. The staff was terrific and our boys loved going there. They also attended the summer day camp which they thoroughly enjoyed.
When they were old enough they served as counselors at the day camp.
It is an invaluable resource in our community.
Great summer camp! My kids absolutely loved every day of summer. They went on trips, learned new games, and met new friends. What a great camp in this community. So glad we moved! This is the best camp my kids ever went to. A+++++++++

I want to thank all of the volunteers, supporters, clients, who work hard with us to support our mission. We are lucky to have all of you. I am blessed to work and lead this amazing children's charity. We can't do it alone and TOGETHER we can continue making a difference for many!
