About Us

Located off base in the Prairies’ housing complex, the Prairies Youth Center (PYC) offers a wide variety of clubs for youth ages 9-18.

Programs are engineered around the Boys and Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) and the 4-H curriculum. They are designed to promote three primary outcomes: academic success, good character & citizenship, and healthy lifestyles.

Prior to joining the PYC, each youth must complete a membership packet.
