LOS ALAMOS FAMILY COUNCIL NEWS RELEASE
Each year, the Los Alamos Family Council’s Youth Activity Centers (YACs) serve hundreds of youth with over 13,000 average annual visits. Hundreds of youth are enrolled each year, and each day after school over fifty youth attend the two YACs.Each YAC serves youth in grades 3rd through 8th after school, and the Los Alamos YAC serves youth throughout the summer and school breaks. Free activities, pool tables, air hockey, foosball, and affordable snacks make the YACs a busy place every afternoon!
The YACs provide a free and safe supervised place for youth to attend every weekday. Daily activities and interactions with staff are designed to build resilience in the youth who attend. This great work has continued through two generations of Los Alamos youth, and several current Los Alamos Family Council staff members were members of the YACs when they were children.
The YACs are free to youth who live, or attend school, in Los Alamos County. Funding for the YACs is provided through an operating contract with Los Alamos County. To learn more about our programs, visit our website at lafamilycouncil.org.
