What we do

Our primary goal is to meet the emotional and developmental needs of Barton County youth. We refer to this process as youth development.

It includes the efforts of other youth, adults, communities, government agencies, and schools to provide opportunities for youth to enhance their interests, skills and abilities into their adulthoods.


We have an extensive range of educational programs and services, and we supply training and materials to area schools and organizations, enhancing their ability to reach youth.
