Ages: 6 – 17
The youth are at the core of everything we do at the BNC. They are the future of our community.
Our Youth Drop-In Program is geared towards youth ages 6 – 17. This program offers a variety of activities such as organized sports, arts & crafts, board games, movies, and music. The intent of this program is to provide youth with a safe space for fun that provides opportunities for growth and prosperity. We want our youth to think of the BNC as a place for them and their friends to feel safe to be themselves, a place where they’re understood, listened to and trusted.
