RECYouth is a multimedia training program for teens ages 14-17. RECYouth offers video, audio, and graphic design training to develop teens’ technology skills while asking them to think critically about issues in their communities and in their lives.
Youth Program:
Youth programs engage children ages 6-14 in fun, educational, computer-based projects that develop their digital and analytical skills while encouraging them to learn, grow, and succeed.
Open Access:
Open Access is free time for recreation center members to use CRC resources. Coordinators are often available for one on one help. Check the CRC schedule for Open Access age guidelines.

While not all classes are offered at all locations, we encourage CRC users to request classes that they would like to take. We strive to serve the needs of every community in designing a course schedule that benefits the greatest number of students.  Please take a brief survey if you wish to request a course.
