Cameron Evans, 13, a seventh grader at Indian Springs Middle School, attends the after-school program every Wednesday. “I wish more kids would come because it’s really fun!”

Maddie Evans, 15, student at Eagle Tech Academy and a regular to The Center said she “loves” The Center. “It feels as if it’s another family,” said Evans. “My heart is literally filled with love when I leave this place.”

Peyton Maul, a first-time visitor to the program said he enjoyed being at The Center because of the “food, games, as well as the nice and caring people.”

The after-school programs provide students the opportunity to learn new skills including cooking, art, sewing, self-defense, weight lifting, and time management. “It’s pretty wide open and we have lots of fun,” Boyles said. Programs provide both structure and freedom to allow students a chance to address deep values such as humility, honor and faith.
