During the school year, Galaxy Youth centers provide Bloomington youth in grades 6-8 a safe and fun place to be with friends afterschool. Galaxy provides youth opportunities for involvement in recreational and enrichment programming. Galaxy offers after school programming on regularly scheduled school days from the first day of school until the Friday before Memorial Day. The hours of operation are from 2:00-5:00 p.m. Galaxy Youth centers are located in each of Bloomington's Middle Schools.
There is also programming during the summer at one of the middle schools. Youth are empowered to work together and serve others in the community through service learning projects and other daily activities.
