Enrichment Programs

Our Enrichment Programs work towards empowering young men and women in the community. These programs will offer youth with the opportunity to meet others in their community, learn more about becoming a leader in the community and gain the self confidence they will need to excel as a member of the community.

Upcoming Programs

The Youth Night Out programs are designed to encourage and empower our youth, while providing them with an environment in which they can prosper and grow friendships. 

These programs are free of charge; however, we do ask that you register in order to participate. You are welcome to register online here, or by calling 910 938-5312.
