Get Involved

Thanks to Our Sponsors


Statistics have proven the effectiveness of after school programs in fighting risky behaviors, promoting academic achievement, and nurturing positive growth in children. Our mission is achieved through donations from our community. Donations fuel our arts and crafts department, they stock our snack bar, they provide books for our reading program, and much more. We appreciate monetary donations, but we also need donations of:

  • Time and Talent
  • Toys
  • Books
  • Educational Materials
  • Computers
  • Donate items to Thrift Store


Becoming a corporate partner is about more than making an impact on the more than 80% of consumers that believe corporations have a responsibility to give back to their community. Our corporate partners are responsible for hundreds of daily smiles and passing test grades. They provide daily peace of mind to hundreds of parents who can work without fear of their children’s safety in the afternoons. Our corporate partners provide a foundation for our staff and volunteers to make a difference in the lives of children everyday. Find out more about becoming a corporate partner today.


YOU can make a difference in the life and outcome of a child simply by volunteering your time and talents at the Sumter Youth Center. There is no other organization quite like the Sumter Youth Center, and the opportunities to give, grow, and make new friends are endless. Need Bright Future Scholarship hours?
