TRAC provides supervision and invaluable mentoring to Poughkeepsie youth. Young people come after school to participate in the TRAC Panthers Basketball team, Poughkeepsie Youth Theatre, to receive academic assistance and exam preparation, and to relax with friends. The Center serves as a support system for local teens.
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.
