KYI was formed in 2006 after the untimely death of two teens due to misuse of drugs. We are youth-operated and adult-mentored. Our main activities include a revenue generating woodsball paintball park, a newly developed concrete skatepark free to all users, and will soon expand to a two-level Youth Community Center. Our programming encompasses life skills and creative endeavors, many of which are directed towards serving the community and building young leaders.
