The Laguna Madre Youth Center is a fun and safe place where young people can come to enjoy themselves and their friends. The Center, housed in Port Isabel, Texas, was founded in 1989. It serves students from the Point Isabel Independent School District in the communities of South Padre Island, Port Isabel, Laguna Heights and Laguna Vista.
To provide a safe place for children to go after school where they can receive healthy snacks, help with learning skills, participate in sports, interact in positive ways, and learn to be responsible members of the community,
We average 100 club members daily.
The club is open to anyone between the ages of 6 and 17 in grades 1-12. Monthly Membership fees are $50 (1st child), $35 (2nd child), $15 (each additional child per family.)
The kids come to the Laguna Madre Youth Center for fun and games, but stay because of the relationships with caring adults. We are a youth development organization serving kids through programs in the following core areas: Character and Leadership Development, Education and Career Development, Health and Life Skills, The Arts, and Sports, Fitness and Recreation.
