You’ve found The Center for Whitley County Youth, an award winning, non-profit, community-based, youth development organization benefitting Whitley County since 2005.
Healthy young people don’t just happen. They are taught, they are led, they are loved. That’s why we are passionate about working with local middle and high school students and nudging them toward strong caring relationships, good character, positive recreation, educational and service opportunities, and spiritual development. We invest in our kids by meeting them at the center of their lives, in the whirlwind of activities that are described on this site.
