Description:

Jamaica Youth Center. The Space offers youth (ages 13-21) a safe and secure after-school environment where they are welcomed, nurtured, counseled and supported.

It's a secure place to socialize with friends, get help with homework and learn basic computer programs and job readiness skills. They can also enjoy a variety of workshops specifically designed to open a world of creative possibilities and develop the life skills needed for success.

These rotate frequently and have included self-expression seminars (photography, art, music and dance), financial literacy workshops, our Spectrum Series specifically designed for LBGTQ youth and our College & Career Discovery program designed to help students simultaneously expand their horizons and expectations of themselves.
