Mission Statement

To provide a structured recreation, socialization, and extra-curricular learning environment in the Southeast quadrant for the citizens of Fayetteville, Arkansas.

Description

In the late 1990's a group of concerned citizens in the southeast quadrant of Fayetteville recognized that a safe place with quality educational support, recreation and social opportunities was needed in their neighborhood. These concerned citizens decided to ask the City of Fayetteville for help- the Yvonne Richardson Community Center was established. Since that time, the center has grown and become a safe haven for kids after school, a place for; adults to socialize, use of the Internet and get physical exercise. On special occasions, neighbors meet at YRCC for social functions & holiday events. Our partnership with the City of Fayetteville Parks and Recreation Department and the Southeast Fayetteville Community Center Board (SEFCC) allows a level of flexibility for programming to remain free or very affordable. Partnerships with Pagnozzi Charities and other organizations also help keep recreation very affordable for our youth. If you know of anyone who would benefit from our services please contact us at (479)444-3461.

Would you recommend Yvonne Richardson Community Center?

I have been volunteering with the Yvonne Richardson Community Center for over 8 years now. Last April I became an Americorps Vista Volunteer at the Center for atleast a one year term as the volunteer coordinator to recruit volunteers for the programs and events we hold. Even if and when my term end my plan is to continue volunteering at the Yvonne Richardson Community Center.

I have not heard of your center before, but based on what I've read, I would love to help out in any way that I can. I have an open schedule to volunteer where necessary. You will be able to easily contact me at the email adress. Thanks so much.
