Youth Services

Poughkeepsie Youth Theater

Our Philosophy
Poughkeepsie Youth Theater (PYT) welcomes young people interested in creating and presenting original, collaborative theatre. Youth who participate in this free after school program have the opportunity to work alongside professional theater practitioners and Vassar College drama majors.

Teen Resource Activity Center (TRAC)

Our Philosophy
TRAC provides supervision and invaluable mentoring to Poughkeepsie youth. Young people come after school to participate in the TRAC Panthers Basketball team, JB’s House of Music, to get help with homework, and to relax with friends. The Center serves as a support system for local teens.

After School Programs

Our Philosophy
We emphasize the safety, health, and well-being of children by providing a secure environment and mentoring relationships with trained adult youth workers. Using project-based learning, children are engaged in a variety of developmentally appropriate activities that serve to enhance their academic, life, and social skills.
