In the Spring of 2012, a new youth center opened its doors in Spanish Lake. Several years in the making, the project brought together local community leaders, partner organizations, the Children’s Service Fund, Saint Louis County’s Departments of Human Services and Planning to address a gap in opportunities for positive youth development in the region.
Today, the Center For Youth on the Rise offers youth ages 12 to 19 a variety of activities and services at no cost including drop-in hours, life skills workshops, counseling services, educational support, employment preparation, youth specialist case management, and legal assistance. County Youth Programs’ Doors to Success is also offered at the site for youth ages 17-23. To enroll in any of these programs, contact the Center directly at:
