Youth Programs

What are the benefits of Brightway youth programs?    

We believe in order to accomplish our mission, every aspect of a child’s development must be addressed so we focus on the person as a whole.  Programs are designed to sharpen minds, strengthen bodies and foster spirits. Activities, workshops and presentations emphasize life-skills education , leadership and character development.  The goal is for participants to walk away with the tools needed to become a happy, contributing member of their commnity.
