Sun Valley has 3 main programs:

In May 2018 the youth center became licensed to serve 90 kids!! This process took literally 5 years and we are so excited to be able to serve more sun valley families.  The Youth Center has three main programs

Afterschool and Summer Programming for youth 5-16

This is the licensed daycare aspect of Sun Valley Youth Center.  We currently are receiving funding from the state through parents' eligibility.  The exciting part of being licensed is that due to our licensure we are able to provide some tax credits to those who apply (see your tax advisor for how this may benefit you as a donor!)

Every Day the youth receive snacks and meals as the Sun Valley Youth Center is located in a what is called a food desert.  This means it is hard to get anywhere for healthy food options.  We partner with The Sun Valley Kitchen to provide the youth with healthy food options.

During the program, we also offer enrichment activities Programs we offer are offering Karate, Flag Football, Cycling, Mindfulness, Yoga, Aqua Fitness, Healthy Living, Life skills, Cooking, Baking, Dance, Photography, Art, STEM, Overcoming Obstacles as well as Literacy (iready) and homework help.
