About the Community Center

The 4,000-square-foot community center features multipurpose rooms for after-school drop-in use, studio space for art and dance classes for children and adults, and a supervised teen activity center with computers, games, and a lounging area.

The City of Boise allocated $600,000 for the center, which serves low-income children in the neighborhood. Whitney is a Title I school with more than 50 percent of children receiving free or reduced price lunches.

At Whitney Community Center, the Kid City free drop-in program is available for children in grades 4-6. Staff members will provide instruction in fitness and art, homework assistance, and a snack. Kid City is open year round.

Kids at Whitney help plant and harvest fresh produce from a community garden maintained by Boise Parks and Recreation.

Teens will enjoy an informal gathering space with cozy lounge chairs, computer stations with interactive video games, and a large-screen TV and Wii games. Staff members will provide mentoring and life skills development for teens.
