The Place Youth Center is a safe place for students to come experience the peace, love and hope of Jesus Christ amidst a world of chaos, violence and rejection. Our programs change with the season but they consistently welcome all ages up to 18 years old.
During the school year we host Friday night hangouts and June-July we open up our Summer Youth Center featuring a variety of clubs and activities throughout the week. However, due to COVID-19 we are trying to do what is best for our community to mitigate spread and promote the health and well being of all. As a result, our usual plans and programs are on pause. See below for more information.
