Teach children life skills and instill in them positive qualities while providing them a safe place to spend time. They prevent many children from getting involved in crime, drugs and alcohol.
NEYC offers before and after school child care for children 5-12.
To provide at-risk youth with culturally enriching and stimulating educational and recreational opportunities that build self-esteem and teach basic life skills. We serve a diverse population through a variety of low-cost or free outdoor recreational activities, before and after school daycare, sports programs and special events. Each month we serve an average of 510 needy children through 12 program hours per day.
We are open year round, including some holidays, Monday & Friday from 6:30 am to 6 pm, plus some Saturdays for special events. Ninety-one percent of our participants come from single parent homes where the children qualify for the School District 81 free school breakfast/lunch program.
We occupy three rooms in the Northeast Community Center in Hillyard, east of Spokane. Established in 1971, the NEYC has grown from a small organization into a program serving children attending nine elementary, middle and high schools.
