Congress Names The Youth Center Nonprofit of the Month


The Youth Center announced today it has been named a Nonprofit of the Month by the United States Congress House of Representatives.

For 71 years, the Youth Center has been providing programs for kids and their families, including music education, after school care, tutoring, summer programs, therapy for kids, programs for teens and scholarships for families in need in the local community.

“We are honored to be named a Nonprofit of the Month,” says Lina Lumme, Executive Director and CEO. “We are proud of our accomplishments this year, including brand new programs like View U, Girls in STEM, and Workshops for Success,” she concluded.

The Nonprofit of the Month Award was given in honor of The Youth Center’s commitment to the youth and equipping them with the tools for future success. “Thank you for your service and dedication to our community,” said Michelle Steel, Member of Congress. “Congratulations on this achievement!”

“The Youth Center is a great example of a nonprofit making a real difference in their community,” said Zechariah Jauregui, Representative of Michelle Steel’s Office, “Their award is well-deserved recognition not only of their work, but the tremendous support they receive from people who have direct experience working with The Youth Center.” Children at The Youth Center enjoyed playing political trivia with Mr. Jauregui.

The Youth Center is a non-profit organization whose mission is to transform children’s lives one family at a time through collaborative social, educational and recreational programs.
