East 10th United Methodist Children & Youth Center
East Tenth United Methodist Children & Youth Center is a Registered Ministry that serves children and families on Indianapolis’ Near Eastside. The center began as an initiative of the E. 10th UM Church in 1995. Research and evidence found that the neighborhood needed a safe place where children could learn and grow. As children in this area are faced with many challenges and East Tenth offers a variety of programs to help meet their needs:
Early Learning Childcare Center provides childcare for infants and children ages 6 weeks to five years old. The center provides quality childcare, educational activities, nutritious meals, inter-generational activities, and a chance to learn and grow in a safe environment to all children.
Summer Days for Youth provides an all-day camp, which focuses on academic enrichment, computer classes, art programs, recreational activities and field trips. The #1 goal for summer is personal development. Last year they provided safe summer fun to 106 youth.
A before and after school program serves school-age children. Their focus is on tutoring, homework, recreational & service opportunities, and drug prevention to help their youth become successful, well-rounded students. They provide transportation to & from school and all-day care during breaks and holidays.
East 10th provides quality care and education regardless of a parent’s ability to pay. They have a sliding scale and this month St. Mark’s is collecting donations that will help subsidize parent payments and provide scholarships for children to attend.
