Youth

Drop In Hours

The Cornerstone Youth Center’s drop-in center hours are Monday thru Thrusdays 3-6pm, Fridays, 3-11pm, and Saturday 7-11pm.

The center is a positive experience for all youth and welcomes youth from all walks of life and home situations in grades 7-12. Youth are asked to follow rules, including signing in and out of the center upon entry and exit, and follow through on a behavior contract if they break the rules. The center is a safe haven for youth of the area and serves as an alternative to potentially destructive behavior, especially during the after school hours where studies have shown a majority of negative peer pressure is experienced.

Our advocacy for youth extends beyond the walls of the center, as we maintain working relationships with local law enforcement officials to address safety issues in the community that are threats to our youth.  Youth are expected to be truthful about their involvement in negative behavior in the center and are expected to solve conflicts nonviolently. Youth also develop empathy, sensitivity and friendship skills through their interaction with others.
