There is no greater investment than our youth. That is why for 25 summers, the Neighborhood Christian Center has used unique and efficient ways to teach young people leadership skills, valuable work ethic, and expose them to the concept of Christian community outreach through the Summer Leadership Program.

Even with all the job and life skills training they receive, we hope that each student will gain an appreciation of impacting the community they live in and being a part of the Body of Christ. It is essential for youth to learn that they have an important role in developing their own relationship with Christ as well as sharing with friends and neighbors.
The youth will be busy learning dances, dramas, skits and working on their testimonies in order to share the Gospel with children across our city. They will be serving at Vacation Bible Schools, performing at local Boys’ & Girls’ Clubs, and other kids’ activities. The youth will be involved in volunteer work, college tours, worksite visits, Bible studies, and educational classes.
