Youth programs provide opportunities to take part in character development activities that teach responsibility, hard work, as well as aim to improve academics. These programs engage youth in wellness activities during critical unstructured after-school leisure times, when youth are most likely at risk to participate in unhealthy activities. The programs are designed to be affordable in order to reach the greatest number of participants. Youth programs vary depending on community needs and wants, and typically include Youth Sports, Monrovia Reads and Plays, Summer Extravaganza, and Youth Commission!
This program is comprised of clubs, excursions, activities, and presentations that serve the adult and senior populations.
