The Swaim Youth Center will be closed during the week before school starts. We will re-open for regular Fall Programs on Thursday, August 25th.
The Swaim Youth Center offers youth an intentional place to build relationships with positive adults and their peers. While hanging out at the Youth Center, junior high and high school students can choose to watch a movie, play video games, create art, record music, or connect with their peers. UAY staff are trained in Positive Youth Development, which allows them to build meaningful relationships with young people.
