RCYF Visits Peppermint Parkway!
What a fun ride we had at Peppermint Parkway! Our students got to cruise through the cool drive-thru lights display at Circuit of the Americas (COTA). The event was wonderfully decorated and even featured a holiday carnival with tons of rides and treats to enjoy. Many of RCYF's students had never visited COTA so seeing such a HUGE racetrack blew them away. Thanks to Glimmer of Hope Foundation for giving RCYF this great holiday gift! #ATX #DoveSprings #YouthPrograms #Holidays #Nonprofits

RCYF's Video Game Careers Camp was a fun and exciting time for the students! The goal was to teach students (ages 8 to 17) about the many career opportunities available in the video game industry (especially in #ATX). Students did an awesome job applying their minds through storyboarding, trivia, brainstorming, coding and designing.

RCYF's FLY Tutoring Program
Hear the success stories of students who participated in RCYF's FLY Tutoring program this spring. Although faced with some tough challenges at school, these students didn't give up. They worked with RCYF's tutors each week to take it one day at a time. The results --＞ amazing!
River City Youth Foundation works with some amazing students. These youth have been working hard in afterschool and weekend hours to learn new tech and leadership skills. Most importantly they've learned what it means to be a trusted friend, a valued team member, and a community leader. #ATX #DoveSprings #RiverCityYouth
