18 South Youth Ministries

18 South Youth Ministries, Inc. is a nonprofit that strives to build authentic relationships with youth; encourage teens to grow socially, intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually; and influence the youth of our communities with the Love of Jesus Christ. This is accomplished with the help of caring and responsible volunteers from local churches.

The organization’s primary focus is the 18 South Youth Center, which opened in November 2007 in Red Lion, Pa. Several thousand visits later, the center has become a place where youth can come to create wholesome relationships and develop important life skills. 18 South welcomes teens, grades 7-12, on Thursday and Friday evenings from 7-10 p.m. Admission is $1 at the door and includes access to video games, pool tables, a snack bar, and the attention of our mentors. During the school year, No Boys Allowed is offered on Mondays, our Grub Club Cooking Program is offered on Tuesdays, and No Girls Allowed is offered on Wednesdays. All after school programs take place from 3-5 p.m., offer free admission, and include a free snack, spiritual encouragement, artistic expression, life skills lessons, and more.
