The Youth Activity Center

The Youth Activity Center is a FREE place for tweens/teens to socialize with friends, play games and receive homework assistance.  The center offers your 6th-12th grader an inclusive and fun place to visit so they are not at home alone. The Hopewell Valley YMCA Youth Activity Center is located at the Main Office at 62 South Main Street, Pennington and is open to students in the Hopewell Valley School District.  Your child can hang with their friends from 3:00 PM to 6:30PM playing ping pong, pool, foosball, video games, getting help with your homework, watching movies, playing outside activities, gathering on our porch, and much more!  The Hopewell Valley YMCA is able to offer this program for free from donations we have received from businesses and community members.

Our Youth Activity Center hours are 3:00 PM-6:30 PM, Monday through Friday  (The center will be closed on Holidays.)

Youth Activity Center Clubs

At the Y, we believe in the value of our youth. We offer various clubs to enrich the group of our teens. Additionally, your child can participate in unique club meetings, free of charge.  Our fall club programming includes Billiards, Academic Tutoring, Astronomers, Ted Talks/Book Clubs, Magic The Gathering, CONTACT and Movie/TV Rant.
