The purpose of the Phelps Community Center Teen Program is to provide quality after school programming in a safe and nurturing environment that promotes the intellectual, emotional, social, and physical development of youth.
The Phelps Community Center philosophy is to provide programs in an affirmative environment that values safety, support, and care while allowing youth the
opportunity to grow independently while participating in a variety of developmentally appropriate activities.
We believe the success of our programs, as determined by your youth positive experience, is based in the quality of our staff. Our staff members are selected based on their experience, education, character, talents, and interpersonal skills. Our staff plans, with the oversight of our Director, Center procedures and curriculum
development for the children. Training includes, but is not limited to, CPR, First Aid (RTE), and child abuse detection are mandated for all staff to complete success-fully. Most importantly, our staff has one main value – commitment to the youths and families we serve.
Goals and Objectives:
The PCC Teen Program promotes the values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility, and healthy lifestyles. The program will meet the needs of youth at the differ-ent stages of development by creating an environment that is homelike and promotes individuality as well as cooperation among the youths who participate. Our daily schedule is structured so that it allows for a choice of a wide-range of developmentally appropriate activities with a balance of active and quiet times while providing opportunities for children to pursue particular interests and develop individual abilities. Youths are encouraged to participate in the daily functioning of the programs, especially on the formulation of behavioral expectations and choosing some of the programs themes and activities.
