We serve the youth of those who work on the backstretch at the racetrack in three key programs, all of which are run by RTCA-IL staff members and volunteers from the area.
Each summer, we run small groups for youth who are in junior high and high school to help build fellowship and teach them about Jesus Christ. These small groups meet on a monthly basis and provide accountability time, Biblical teaching, worship and fellowship. We also run a week-long Vacation Bible School day camp for elementary students each summer to teach them about the Lord and allow them to grow together.
We also run athletic programs for youth throughout the summer, with our most popular soccer sports camp running in the summer. This allows the children to learn good sportsmanship and healthy levels of competition while keeping them active & allowing them to learn from one another on and off the field.
Our youth education programs aim to put children on the path to high school graduation and even college acceptance. We have an after-school tutoring program, one-on-one tutoring and an overall educational support team proving these students with the help they need to succeed in school.
