Russell Youth Community Center

Russell youth center kids

The Russell Youth and Community Center in West Cambridge contains an NCAA-sized basketball court, project room, computer room, teaching kitchen and a community function room. We offer:

  • homework assistance
  • healthy snacks
  • leadership development opportunities
  • sports leagues
  • arts
  • community service
  • enrichment activities

We also serve as a Community Center.

The Pre-teen Leadership Program provides a wide range of afterschool programming for youth in grades 4 - 5 that is enhanced through partnerships with several local organizations.

Our Middle School Program, for youth in grades 6 - 8, builds on experiences in the pre-teen program by providing developmentally appropriate experiences in an afterschool setting.

In our Teen Programs, small groups of youth work with adults to focus on skill-building and developmental outcomes. Our enrichment programs help young people broaden their world vision through workshops, field trips and guest speakers.
