You Can Still Donate Towards Our Telethon!

The Milford Youth Center is reaching out to YOU to help raise funds to build a music and multimedia music room! For this reason, we are requesting for your support to help the Center reach our goal of raising $10,000! At our Telethon on August 19, 2017 from 4-10 PM we raised over $7,000! In an effort to help the Center, after State funding was cut, Milford TV offered to join forces and put on a telethon to draw attention to the Youth Center’s endeavors to finish our multimedia and music rooms, areas that were not a part of the scope of the recent renovation. The Telethon was such a fun and successful event! We are so grateful for all the volunteers, acts and performers who came out on a Saturday to support our cause! A huge thank you to Milford TV and Ray Auger for hosting the event for us! Finally, thank you to all the individuals and companies who have donated so far!!

There are many ways to still donate and we would like to thank those who already have! Any donation is appreciated and would go a long way to help this room come to fruition!

Almost Time for Back to School!

We hope everyone is enjoying their summer and excited to start a new school year! The Center will be opening its after-school program on the first day of school, Wednesday, August 30, 2017. For updated registration forms please click here.
The first and second day of school, kids will be welcomed in and can also pick up registration forms then.  Starting Tuesday September 5 th , any child coming to the after-school program must be registered or they will not be able to stay! So get your registration forms in the earlier the better! After turning in a registration form, the after-school member will be issued a key tag. If the child has been here for the previous school year, they use the same key tag.  Replacement key tags can be purchased for $1.  The key tag will be used to sign in and out daily and for us to track attendance. Our calendar for September will be available soon!

The Milford Youth Center has become the focal point for the children of Milford. It hosts many different activities and events throughout the year for the youth! The Milford Youth Center’s after school program is open for youth ages 8-18, free of charge, from 2-6 pm Monday through Friday (check monthly calendar for any changes). All members must be a Milford resident or attend Milford Schools. All Youth members must be picked up by time of closing (unless they walk home). Pick up is outside of the building on 24 Pearl St.  There may be additional permission forms to participate, due to some programs being held off site (Transportation is not provided). The game room, gymnasium and lounge, will be opened daily.
Volunteers are always welcome to assist with the after-school program or during the morning hours! We are always looking for help during the after-school hours, 2-6 PM. You may also run a program/activity during the after-school program.  We also need volunteers for our monthly evening events. Please  contact us if you would like to volunteer.
