AAYC Is a very good non-profit to get involve in your community and fun activites for kids and families. The staff is very friendly and will help you in any way. The haunt is one of the best in Amarillo, I worked in it and it was fun. There is a lot of clubs like: exercise, dancing and fencing. I was in fencing and it is a good work out and its fun to learn. AAYC is a good environment and you will feel welcomed here to be involved in. Matt Hite and his Brother are very nice and friendly Staff and they work hard. I enjoy working in the haunt and fencing. :)

The AAYC is a superb 501c3 in Amarillo Texas. Very few non-profits operate on 100% volunteers. The AAYC does a great job with community awareness events and activities for items that affect the youth of Amarillo.

The AAYC Youth Cabinet is a group of young people that help run the AAYC under the direction of the AAYC Board of Directors. Under the leadership of Matthew Hite the AAYC is moving forward and making a major difference throughout Amarillo.

The AAYC is not only a great place that helps to keep kids off the streets, but they also help kids learn something. Whether it's how to break dance, play basketball, or even boost their confidence in themselves. Kids may come in and not know anyone there but it won't be the same when they leave.

The Amarillo youth center is a great example for kids growing up in the local community. I'm glad I've been able to see the progress through out the years with the program. I know the impact the youth center is making on the kids attending it will change their lives for the positive. I got the opportunity to help out with the the Amarillo youth center haunted house they had during Halloween and it was a great time. This organization has been heading on the right path. I hope to see new things on the horizon for the Amarillo youth center. Keep giving the young ones something to look forward to and to mold them in to productive adults!

Though I have known about this group for a long time, last year we attended the 1st ever Biker Bully Bash.

This was a motorcycle ride and haunted house tour to raise awareness on bullying.

Matt and his crew were great to work with. Their caring and looking out for the youth they serve is outstanding!

We look forward to returning for more events at the AAYC.
