Tips for Choosing Youth Organizations and Centers
If you’re looking for somewhere to send your child to pass some time in the summer or throughout the school year, look no further than youth organizations and centers. There, they can socialize and take part in extracurricular activities, all within a safe environment. These local, after school outlets are designed specifically for young people so they can get exercise, play games, socialize and be creative. Whether through non-profit organizations or town-led recreation departments, look to youth organizations and centers for ideas. Here are some tips for choosing youth organizations and centers:

Tip #1: Choose a program that engages your child
When looking for a youth center, focus on those that you know will truly engage, motivate or entertain your child. If your son is active and loves to be outdoors playing sports, don’t sign him up for an academic club or activity that requires him to sit for long periods of time. If your daughter loves team activities, don’t put her in a solitary sport.

Tip #2: Ask how instructors and volunteers are screened
Because you want to know your child is in a safe environment and cared for by reputable instructors, it’s important you look into what the screening process is for hiring such instructors. They should all go through extensive background checks plus show expertise and experience in the course or program they are leading.

Tip #3: Target organizations that reflect your values
Select a youth center or organization that is in line with your beliefs, religious or otherwise. While some youth organizations and centers are religiously based, such as Christian groups, others welcome anyone no matter what their background is. Some focus on charity work, while others focus on team building and leadership. Hone in your child’s strengths and choose a club based on that.

Every year, many parents decide to enroll their children in youth organizations. These organizations can provide a great range of programs for eligible teens and children. Some centers focus on education, others on sports or recreational activities. There are also Christian groups that have a spiritual focus. No matter what kind of youth organization or club you choose for your kids, there are some important considerations to bear in mind.

  • What policies are in place regarding appropriate interaction between staff and youth members?
    You need to check the organization's codes that regulate staff interaction with the teens. While you're at it, you may also wish to ask several related questions. In the event of sexual misconduct, do they attempt to handle the incident internally or immediately report it to the police? Are staff trained to detect signs of sexual abuse that may be occurring? What sort of background checks do they perform to screen staff members?

  • What affiliations does the youth organization have?
    Check to see if the club or group is connected to a larger organization that may act as a regulatory body. Many sports-oriented clubs are endorsed by a national organization. For example, the United States Soccer Federation oversees a variety of youth programs whose purpose is to introduce the sport to children.

  • How big are the groups your teen will be involved with?
    Some youth organizations offer fairly small groups and sometimes even one-on-one interaction between mentor and teen. This can be especially valuable in a youth group with an educational focus, which allows your youngster a greater degree of attention devoted to their academic problems. However, smaller group sizes may be prohibitively expensive, and your teen may be comfortable with more peers around.
