Transformative relationships coupled with high quality programs are at the core of our work. Our team of youth development professionals empower young people to succeed in school, discover their artistic passions and skills, adopt healthy lifestyles, successfully pursue college and career pathways, and become community leaders. Young people have the opportunity to join the WEH as early as age 7 and participate in programs through college graduation. The skills they learn and the friends they make, stay with them for a lifetime. Our 43,000 square foot, state of the art facility, enables us to design and deliver comprehensive programs across a broad spectrum that meet the needs and interests of young people from all backgrounds and age groups. As an organization committed to removing barriers to participation, our annual membership fee is only $15 and provides access to all program offerings.
