Emmalena Family Resource and Youth Service Center

The Emmalena Family Resource Center serve children through age 12 and coordinates preschool child care; after-school day care; families in training, family literacy services; health services and referrals; referrals to health and social services; career exploration and development; substance abuse education and counseling; and family crisis and mental health counseling. FRYSC partnerships are critical in efforts on behalf of students to promote: early learning and successful transition to school; academic achievement and well-being; and graduation and transition into adult life. FRYSC prepares the students for future employment and successful transition into adult life through the coordination of school and community resources by having a Career Day/Workshops and the Reality Store to assist students in career choices and work with budgets. FRYSC collaborates with the STLP students to promote technology, computer classes, and etc. In addition, we work with the 4-H in after-school and summer camps on nutrition, science experiments, sewing, cooking, etc. It is FRYSC intention to promote the STEM process oriented thinking (problem solving, modeling, experiment creation, analytical thinking) to a select group of girls in grades 4-8. The goal of the FRYSC is to meet the needs of all children and their families served by the center as a means to enhance student academic success.
