The newly-remodeled Caldwell YMCA Youth Activity Center has re-opened! Filled with new technology, a sensory space, and places to play, make friends, and do homework. A grand re-opening celebration was held on January 11.
“Youth thrive in a welcoming place and receive meaningful support, social connections, and positive relationships. An environment where they can find their passion and purpose; A safe space where they can feel free to express and be themselves: A hangout spot where they’ll interact and celebrate with others from a variety of backgrounds, races, ages, and cultures. Welcome to the Caldwell Youth Activity Center. A place where you belong!” -Claudia Suastegui, Youth Director, Caldwell YMCA
Our staffed Youth Activity Centers (YAC) offer youth and teens (ages 6–13) a place to gather, socialize, play games, or just relax. Within the various programs and activities offered in these areas, youth are cultivating the values, skills, and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health, and educational achievement.
Youth Activity Centers can be found at Tomlinson South Meridian YMCA, Downtown Boise YMCA, West Boise YMCA & Boise City Aquatic Center, and Caldwell YMCA.
