Helping Young People Excel (H.Y.P.E.) Enrichment Program, the C.O.G.I.C. Community Center’s after school program, cultivates new and efficient ways to deliver a superior program to children, adolescents, and teens in the surrounding communities. Our afterschool program consists of a Teen Zone for ages 13 to 18, a Game Room, After school tutoring, Arts & Crafts, Hip Hop Dancing, Basketball, Recreation, and Culinary Arts.
H.Y.P.E. (Helping Young People Excel) Enrichment Program is safe haven in Muskegon County where underserved youth are empowered to take ownership of the quality and direction of their lives through programs in education, arts, and well-being and are inspired to make a meaningful difference in their community and the world.
As individuals creating and working together for a common mission, H.Y. P. E. is a Christian environment where all are free of harassment and are empowered, valued and appreciated for their unique qualities and contributions. We endeavor to treat each other with appreciation, understanding, dignity, respect and fairness at all times.
We provide a safe and friendly environment where kids ages 6 years to 18 years can come and have fun. Instead of our children running the streets, we want to give them something to do and keep your child safe! There is always something to do and the kids never get bored. We have a Teen Zone for those who are between the ages of 13 and 18 providing a fun and friendly atmosphere for your teenager.
Through the H.Y.P.E. Enrichment Program we focus on shared values and aspirations. Each day we meet our members and staff with love and respect. We commit to constant growth and improvement as human beings and as a community agency. And, whether in the gymnasium, the cafeteria, the athletic field, the dance studio, in a classroom, the Teen Zone, or anywhere in our facility, we are connected through a set of values that inform our behavior: Respect, Empathy, Accountability, Courage, Hope because they are REACHing beyond their walls and past the horizon… and they are carrying something with them.
The H.Y.P.E. Enrichment program is available year-round for children ages 6 to 18. We are open Monday thru Friday from 4:00 pm until 8:00 pm (September 5th thru June 9th) and Monday thru Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (June 12th thru August 31st).
