Youth Connected

A Safe Place for All Youth

Kerr Street Mission is a safe and fun place for youth grade 6 through high school to hang out. All students are warmly welcomed into a community where they will be accepted, encouraged and challenged by our staff, volunteers and their peers.

Whether it is sharing a snack, playing video games, playing in the gym, or just spending time with friends in the lounge, there is always something to do.

Here’s a look at what is happening throughout the week:

Grades 5-8

Mondays | 3 pm – 5 pm

Girls Connected is a program designed to offer girls from grades 5-8 the opportunity to connect, socialize, and build relationships with one another. We help educate them on real life challenges and choices they will face in their day to day as well as in their future. Topics range from body image, self-esteem, building relationships, positive self-image, the issues faced through social media, and mental health challenges. We hope to prepare them to forge a bright and optimistic future as well as giving them the skills to mentor and be positive peer influences and role models with other women in their community.

Grade 6-8

Tuesdays & Thursdays | 3 pm – 6 pm

Our Jr. High drop-in is a program for youth to come and have a great time at KSM. There will be a chance to hang out in our youth room and play games, get some help with homework, and play sports in our gym.

Ages 6-17

Tuesdays | 7 pm – 8 pm

KSM Youth Game Day Drop-In Basketball is a drop-in sports program for anyone aged 6-17 that is looking for some fun basketball competition.

Grades 6-12

Wednesdays | 3 pm – 5 pm

Boys’ Connected is a program designed to offer boys from grades 6-12 the opportunity to connect, socialize, and build relationships with one another. This program aims to deliver fun programming while providing a space where boys can go deeper in their relationships with one another. We hope to help prepare them for challenges and obstacles that they will face as they go through life and help them develop into successful, passionate, and hard-working men. The program includes a time for physical activity, a healthy snack, and time to socialize and develop in activities that have been intentionally planned by our staff.

Grade 6 & Up

Fridays | 3 pm – 6 pm

Our Friday Youth drop-in is a chance for youth to come to KSM and hang out with each other. Come to the youth room for video games and board games or hang out in the gym for basketball, volleyball, or any sport you like.

Grade 6 & Up

Fridays | 6 pm – 8:30 pm

Emerge is our Friday night hangout for youth from grade 6-12. We will be partnering with churches around the area to come in on Friday nights and have a meal together with the youth, run some games, and have an awesome time together!

High School Students can gain volunteer hours and leadership experience by helping out in our drop in and sports programing.
