About Host Site:
The Milford Youth Center has become the focal point for the children of Milford. The Milford Youth Center after school program is open for youth ages 8-18, free of charge, from 2-6 pm Monday through Friday. We see over 200 youth every day, through this program and the many community and sports organizations that utilize the facility. The youth of Milford have come to depend on the Youth Center to provide them with the necessary activities and events that help them develop physically, mentally, socially and emotionally through their childhood years. The Center is also open before and after-school hours for rentals. Through youth-adult collaboration the MYC seeks to engage our community to promote healthy development for youth and families by reducing substance use, lowering risk factors and strengthening protective factors.
