North Light Community Center is a place where children learn and play in a safe and nurturing environment, teens learn life and entrepreneurial skills to realize their full potential, and parents seek counsel and civic engagement. In 1936, a principal and police captain founded NL as North Light Boys' Club. In the 1940s, NL expanded to include girls and social supports. Today, NL is a member of the Federation of Neighborhood Centers. Programs include a state-licensed childcare facility with year-round school-age programs, arts and recreation, emergency supports, on-site tutoring, youth leadership training and workforce development, parenting education and access to technology. Programs nourish personal empowerment, help reduce high-risk behaviors and positively impact youth, strengthen families and enrich our community. Driven by a compassionate Board of Directors, dedicated staff, and a talented pool of more than 650 volunteers offering 10,000 hours of service annually, North Light is an essential community hub.
