Fifty-seven percent of children between 6 and 17 years old participate in at least one after-school extracurricular activity.
Children were more likely to participate in sports (35%) than clubs or lessons like music, dance and language.
Our first priority is to meet basic human needs, but we recognize the importance of programs that go beyond the basics of food, shelter, clothing and safety. In addition to meeting basic needs, The Salvation Army strives to provide programs that will help children thrive during crucial developmental years - from after school programs and summer camps, to childcare and toys at Christmas.
Troops & Character Development Programs
The Salvation Army's character-building troop programs offered for youth vary from community to community, but all are Biblically based and led by trained volunteers. The Salvation Army's goal is to give young people a safe community in which to grow and prosper.
Sunbeams are for girls ages 6-10, Girl Guards for girls ages 11-18, and boys have Adventure Corps ages 6-18.
In addition, The Salvation Army provides free Transportation for those children who need a ride and serve a free dinner that evening.
In Sheridan, we also have Youth Group which helps teach teens leadership skills while engaging in fun and exciting experiences. This program takes place every Friday night from 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM.
We offer family nights once a month. Please call the office for times and dates of of the family night for each month.
