VCOF Youth Programs assist at-risk youth who may be more susceptible to self-destructive behaviors due to unstable homelife. In 1987, VCOF recognized the special needs of children whose parents were active military, veterans, battling substance abuse addiction or were incarcerated.
Youth Programs include after school, summer camp and community weekend recreation providing structured educational, art, recreational and intervention programming. The youth programs emphasize leadership development, community engagement and service to others.
VCOF recognizes that quality childcare is a buffer against unemployment and homelessness for veterans and low-income families. Our youth programs are open to all children from military or non-military families.
