SUPPORT CHILDREN, SUPPORT THE FUTURE
The Glens Falls Area Youth Center first opened back in 1968. Since that time, this organization has helped thousands of children.
In the beginning the Youth Center was housed in places where most people wouldn't dare set one pinky toe; dark, cramped quarters complete with couches that erupted with dust clouds every time someone sat down. Then Matt Congdon became the Executive Director and everything changed. He passionately advocated for the underprivileged children in the area. His dream was to build a brand new Youth Center, complete with its own gymnasium, to serve as a second home for these youngsters. He worked tirelessly and after raising a million dollars in eight months, it became an actuality.
Twenty-one years have passed since then and this organization has only continued to grow and evolve in our location on 60 Montcalm Street.
The Youth Center has always been like a family, and we are always welcoming more members to join the group!
Investing in these kids, in our organization, is investing in a brighter future and ensures that the Youth Center will continue to be around for generations to come!
We have some awesome fundraisers on the agenda for this year! Show your support by attending or, if you can't make it, simply send a donation instead!
The Glens Falls Area Youth Center is a non-profit organization that serves disadvantaged youth who are in 5th to 12th grade in the Greater Glens Falls, New York area through a wide variety of educational, recreational and life-skills programs (including after school snacks and dinner each day), completely free of charge.
