 Program directors said, all in all, it's about making learning fun for kids in a safe environment. "Southside Youth Senter offers a fun and safe educational environment where children can come and learn something and have a blast at the same time," said Kittle.

Kittle credits Southside's staff as the element that really sets the Southside Youth Senter apart. Program Director, Darrin Warren said, "I love getting a chance to be involved in their lives and actually making an impact."

"I love the kids! I love this place! I think it's so much fun! It's the best job I've ever had... [Kids] have great role models and a support system here. We love to help them," said Shawna Maloney, Program Director for the Southside Youth Senter.
