Important Terms about Youth Organizations & Centers

Youth organizations and centers encompass a wide variety of different programs. Some offer educational opportunities and rehabilitation for so-called troubled teens. Others are Christian organizations intended to teach teens religious values. Other organizations focus on giving teens a venue to play sports or games during the summer months. Among the above, you can find non-profit clubs run wholly by volunteers, while others are relatively expensive outfits with a national focus. Here we'll define certain key terms that tend to crop up in this field.

  • Youth Coordinator - A person who develops relevant programs for youth organizations and clubs. These programs often relate to sports, travel, or educational activities.
  • Youth Worker - A person who works with teens or children at a youth organization. They can be older teens or adults, and they often act as mentors to one or more members of the youth group.
  • At-risk Youth - A widely used term describing teens who demonstrate a propensity for anti-social behavior. This can include teens with a history of drug abuse, poor family relationships, or emotional problems. Many youth programs are dedicated to helping at-risk teens and children.
  • Wilderness Therapy - A type of youth program where teens are placed a remote outdoor environment with the intention of teaching them valuable life skills.
  • Youth Pastor - Generally seen in youth organizations with a Christian focus, this is a counselor who helps teach religious values to kids. Sometimes called a youth minister.

    Youth organizations and centers for teens can be found in several major cities and towns across the country. These programs and clubs are offered so that young children and teenagers have somewhere to go and something to do. This is why many educational programs and extracurricular activities are offered at non-profit clubs and centers for kids. Public youth organizations commonly teach multicultural interaction, sports, games, and Christian ways. No matter where you reside in the US, there is likely a local community center in your area. As you probably know, many people volunteer at public youth clubs, community centers, and nationally recognized facilities across the US. Large groups of young children and teenagers come to these centers daily after school. It is often free to become a member, and it is a great way to interact with peers and groups who enjoy the same sports or activities. Charity events are often held which help pay for these youth programs and educational clubs for kids. While one teen may attend a youth center every day to play basketball with friends, another kid may show up twice a week for an individual learning program. These facilities are generally open to all kids. Since there very well may be a youth center in your area, a great way to learn more about common educational programs, sports teams, multicultural events, and volunteer options is by speaking with someone in charge. If you are interested in a specific aspect of teen clubs, be sure to address this with one of their staff members.
