Youth Center Points

Here at the YMCA we expect our Youth Center students to make positive contributions to our community while at the program! We will be using the following point system to encourage positive contributions!

What you need to know:

  1. Everyone starts each month with 20 points. 
  2. Students’ points decrease by 2 pts each day they attend Youth Center
  3. You can earn points by making positive contributions to Youth Center
  4. If your points fall below zero, you will not be allowed to stay.
  5. However, you will be given the opportunity to earn points back.  If you can earn 5+ points, you will be allowed to stay.
  6. Points Reset at the start of the month
