Worried What Your Children Will Do This Summer?

Check out CYO

It’s already April and we parents are starting to worry what are children will do when school ends and we’re at work.  Thankfully, there are Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) sports and youth programs to fill the gap.

Too many children move in the summer from empty apartments and the lure of the streets. At Catholic Charities we offer an alternative: safe, high-quality programs staffed by motivated professionals and volunteers. Our programs help children pursue their strengths through academic support, sports, recreation, arts and cultural experiences.

Not just sports

Many think about Catholic Charities’ sports programs when they think about CYO. After all, more than 18,000 youth participate each year.

But these parish-based youth programs supported by Catholic Charities offer more than just sports. Thousands of children and teens also participate in activities that span from teen groups to fitness challenges, art, essay, oratorical contests and more. Together they foster young people’s spiritual, cultural and athletic growth. 

So stop worrying and check out CYO for your children this summer.
