The Youth Resource Center (YRC)* at Jefferson Middle School is an innovative collaboration between the LCEC, Madison School-Community Recreation (MSCR), and the Urban League of Greater Madison. Together we provide a positive place for middle-school youth to belong, strengthen school connections, and prepare for the challenges of high school. In 2015, 147 middle-school students participated in high-quality daily and drop-in programs offered by YRC and the LCEC.
*The Madison Metropolitan School District and MSCR have grants from Dane County Human Services and the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction to run Youth Resource Centers at twelve MMSD Middle Schools. A variety of afterschool, evening and weekend recreation activities, educational opportunities and service opportunities are offered for students and families.
