Support FYC. Support Children.
From the Executive Director
Dear Firth Youth Center Community,
As we begin 2022, we cannot help but reflect upon all the incredible individuals, selfless volunteers, small businesses, collaborating non-profits, and local companies who have supported the Firth Youth Center throughout the past year. Despite ever-changing regulations and the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, hundreds of children utilized the FYC and, simply put, it would not have been possible without our supportive community. Whether it was for After School Care, High School Drop-In Nights, Summer Camp, Middle School Expansion hours, homework help, athletic competitions, School Closure Activities, Cooking Classes, or any other reason to visit, it felt amazing to finally RE-FILL the Firth after an incredibly challenging and stressful 18-months!
We have big plans for 2022! We plan to offer more diverse programs, extend hours with substance use prevention initiatives, make building improvements, facilitate character building education programs, host parent-child workshops, and more. No matter what we do though, our team will continue to adapt to meet the needs of the children of Phillipsburg! For nearly 70 years, this building has been a sanctuary to thousands of vulnerable youth, many of whom have returned to "pay it forward" for the positive role the Center played in their own lives. Now, more than ever, youth need a safe, supervised, nurturing environment to express themselves as they develop into responsible young men and woman.
From the bottom of my heart, I am forever grateful for the many ways we receive support each day and humbly ask that you keep the Firth Youth Center in mind for your charitable contributions.
With sincerest gratitude,
