STR8 UP Youth Ministry is a non-denominational faith-based community youth center. STR8 UP is a safe place for middle and high school age young people to learn about Jesus, get academic help, and enjoy athletics and more, all under the guidance of mentors.
STR8 UP opened its doors this past June and has over 200 middle and high school kids registered. They provide free tutoring by teachers and the use of computers for academic support. The ministry also has many developmental programs such as spiritual, academic, artistic, life skills and career to help develop our local youth into great members of our community now and in the future. There are many sports and recreational activities offered. STR8 UP fosters a family environment. Recently, they even took a trip together to Wet-n-Wild. The day was filled with fun, food, and fellowship.
Currently the hours of operation are Thursdays 3-8pm, Fridays 3-9pm and Saturdays 3-8pm. STR8 UP is praying for additional funding to open 6 days a week.
