The Youth Activity Centers are operated through Los Alamos Family Council (LAFC) as a natural part of LAFC’s mission to enhance the quality of life through prevention of substance use and abuse. The programming focus of the Youth Activity Centers is on youth resiliency, a safe, supervised environment and positive adult role models.
The program provides regular as well as “drop in,” supervised programs at no cost for youth in grades 3-8. Youth in grades 7-8 (middle school age) may also participate in Big MAC, which plans quarterly dances for middle school students. Adults work with the youth to produce the dances.
