Good People know Good People

We love to work with people who enjoy developing youth, being socially-conscious and supporting healthy lifestyles for all.  But, sometimes good people are hard to find.  We have current full and part-time openings, particularly in our areas of Early Care/Education and Before/After School Care.  If you know a good person ... please make the introduction!    


Our Mission:  To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.
