• Changing Generations

    Research shows that a child who attends college is seven times more likely to move in to the middle class. Thus, youth programs are critical to breaking the poverty cycle.

Children & Youth Programs

Through our programs dedicated to children and youth, The Salvation Army is striving to change generations by giving children from poverty-stricken environments the chance to start life in a very different place than their parents may have.

After School

The Salvation Army is partnering with The Boys & Girls Club of Central Mississippi to provide After School Care. We strive to increase students’ motivation to learn and to make learning fun.

Developmental Sports

At The Salvation Army, youth athletic programs teach boys and girls valuable lessons about life. Participants in organized athletic programs learn the meaning of integrity and fair play by being part of a team. They learn how to win graciously and how to lose without being defeated. They also learn that there are adults who care for them and who are willing to spend time helping them to be better people and not just better athletes.

Camp Hidden Lake

For many disadvantaged kids, the possibility of having a fun at summer camp is not an option. With the help of donors in the community, we send kids to our summer camp near Lexington, Mississippi. The Salvation Army’s 300 acre Camp Hidden Lake helps disadvantaged boys and girls in Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi open their eyes to a whole new world – THE NATURAL WORLD. Camp Hidden Lake teaches kids new skills, healthy attitudes, and great values and  offers sports, music, Bible Study, arts and crafts, swimming, fishing, and other activities for school aged youngsters in our community.
