The Youth Development Company was developed with one main focus, to provide support to local youth! We cater to children from birth to 18 years old and provide a range of age-appropriate resources and activities to encourage their development and support their ongoing educational journey.
Born from a commitment to creating a place with activities and support services that would cater to the specific needs of youth 5 to 14 years old, we also run a summer park program for approximately 100 local and visiting youth in South Haven.
The Youth Development Company/PAL is the largest independent youth organization in Van Buren County, MI and plays a vital role in the lives of children and young adults in Bangor, Covert, and South Haven school districts; which account for 10% of Van Buren County’s total youth population.
Committed to growing and adapting our services to meet the emerging needs of students and communities, we consistently monitor the needs of the children in these three cities as they have been reported to have approximately 79% of students who are “economically disadvantaged.”
As evidenced by our 98% approval rating from our school districts, families and youth, our programs are making a positive impact. Thus far, our success and growth have been achieved through the development of successful partnerships, impactful programs, and a consciousness of the changing demographics in our service areas. We plan on continuing this and working to build a better tomorrow for the youth growing and developing today.
