The Tree Street Youth Center opened in 2011 to meet the academic, athletic and social needs of low-income and at-risk youth in the area, offering opportunities for learning and growing in a nurturing environment. Programs that Tree Street Youth offers students include exploring visual and performing arts, taking workshops in different art mediums (music, studio art, handicrafts, Somali traditional dance, Hip-Hop), familiarizing students with college opportunities and goals, giving students job skills through tutoring and mentoring, providing an afterschool program, and more. Each day, Tree Street Youth serves around 120-150 youth from ages 5 to 18. The Center provides a safe, nurturing and affirming environment where youth from throughout the neighborhood can easily access opportunities to improve their academic performance, obtain positive social reinforcement, learn healthy lifestyles, cultivate personal interests and build community.
