The Valley Youth Center of Duluth was excited to have a variety of activities for our youth on Friday, January 22. We had a dog sled team visit and give the kids rides around the school yard, led by dog sledder Billie Diver. We also had stations for kids to learn how to snow shoe and ski. We thank all of our volunteers who helped out and a special thanks to the Lloyd K. Johnson Foundation for making this event possible!

It’s tough to be a kid these days. Academic standards are higher. Health issues linked to obesity and less active life styles are increasing. And positive adult role models can be harder to find.

At Valley Youth Centers of Duluth we help kids in all of these areas and more. In our relaxed setting, kids can find the extra tutoring and homework help they need to do better in school. They stay physically active through a variety of indoor and outdoor games and adventures. And they learn leadership skills and how to make a positive contribution to their community. Most importantly, we give kids a safe place to have fun and just be kids.
