May 2017 Alpine Ca. 91901 – The Alpine Youth Center (AYC) is going on four years of providing a safe haven for a variety of kids looking for a warm, semi-structured and welcoming place to interact, chill-out, and be supported in “living healthy” in a sometimes unhealthy world. Although we have recently gone through changes in leadership, our goals and mission remain constant. If you are not familiar with the Alpine Youth Center please watch this really FUN and informational video! Enjoy! WATCH VIDEO
Through the leadership of a Board of Directors, volunteer staff, friends of the AYC, local churches, and caring individuals from our Alpine community, we continue to practically love and offer developing youth a safe place to reside after school from 2 to 6pm. Sundays we are open from 12 to 4pm for engaging activities.
Many families, single, married, our Alpine parents, grandparents, moms and dads value the Alpine Youth Center and what we have provided to their children over the years. Moreover, the AYC is an ongoing benefit to our Alpine community! For example, youth are less likely to engage in destructive or unhealthy ways of being because they have a healthy and friendly place to go after school.
Furthermore, the AYC staff consistently offer support and encouragement! Staff volunteers get to know the kids, spend time with, develop activities, set boundaries, essentially love our youth 6 days out of the week. Our practical goal is to teach, role model a healthy lifestyle, and promote a constant message to persevere in ways that are socially acceptable and rewarding.
The Alpine Youth Center is a Christian based organization. We are a 501c(3) recognized non-profit in California under Behold Christian Ministry. We welcome all youth to be involved and never push or force our Christian views. However, we do present the amazing grace of God, practically love, and meet youth wherever they might be in this journey of life.
To continue fulfilling our mission, we need community support. Not only do we need volunteers who agree with our mission, but we need financial support. We are looking for consistent monthly “champions” who are able to give $100 a month to support our efforts. If that doesn’t work, we appreciate any amount doable for your giving budget.
We desperately need new flooring, window coverings, etc., however, we have no funds to significantly upgrade the AYC in these essential areas. If you’d like to give a financial gift toward this end, please joyfully do! As we move forward and accomplish upgrading, we will be inviting our Alpine community to visit! An open house is approaching to ask questions, clarify who we are, our goals, and most importantly, how you can be involved!
Most sincerely, and Thank you!
