Youth Services

All Seneca-Babcock Community Association programs are designed to encourage our youth to realize a wide variety of positive outcomes, a strategy for developing the “whole child.” In recent years, the SBCA movement has focused additional efforts on helping children and teens achieve in our three priority outcome areas of Academic Success, Good Character and Citizenship, and Healthy Lifestyles. Our innovative programs are designed to empower youth to excel in school, become good citizens and lead healthy, productive lives.

Character and Leadership Development

These programs help youth become responsible, caring citizens and acquire skills to participate in the democratic process. Program participants also develop leadership skills and gain opportunities for planning, decision-making, contributing to the community and celebrating our national heritage.

Education and Career Development

These programs are designed to ensure that all youth graduate from high school on time, ready for a post-secondary education and a 21st-century career. SBCA's unique approach to workforce readiness prepares youth for success in their first jobs and helps them develop a plan to achieve their chosen careers.

Health and Life Skills

These programs develop young people’s capacity to engage in positive behaviors to nurture their well-being, set personal goals and grow into self-sufficient adults.

The Arts

These programs provide youth with resources that inspire creativity and develop 21st century skills through high-quality arts programming in fine arts, digital arts, performing arts and applied arts. From photography to hip-hop, our arts programs have something that will inspire everyone.

Sports, Fitness and Recreation

These programs help develop physical fitness, reduce stress and promote a positive use of leisure time, appreciation for the environment and interpersonal skills.
