Named after the founding pastor’s wife, the Annie Pearl Foster Center for Youth Enrichment (APFCYE) endeavors to enrich the lives of youth throughout the community.
Our purpose is to teach values and encourage a greater sense of drive and work ethics in youth by providing sustained support and growth opportunities with an emphasis on character development.
Youth benefit from our program services as a means of strategic intervention focusing on literacy as well as reading comprehension. With this strategic focus, as well as individual growth planning and progress monitoring, our aim is to fortify mastery of essential knowledge and skills outlined in our program offering.

This program is designed to help youth get through their day-to-day challenges in these troubled times.
Counselors are available to listen and guide youth to problem-solve various and enormously complicated issues with which they are confronted. It is the desire to help youth overcome their challenges and put them on a solid path of emotional stability in a welcoming and supportive environment.

Tailored for youth Pre-K and Kindergarten. This program uses the Harmonious Intervention through Language Opportunities (HILO) curriculum. The curriculum was developed with “the assumption that all kids can benefit from learning a second language.”
Offering appropriate learning opportunities through songs, games, art and other activities by which language, specifically Spanish, can be developed and vocabulary practiced at an early age, this curriculum was developed through The Overton Group, Austin, Texas, in association with the Austin Independent School District.
From the podium to the audience, youth will learn how to overcome nervousness, anxiety and the fear of public speaking, while learning how to make a formal and informal presentation in a clear, concise and persuasive manner.
By understanding voice projection, articulation, pacing, fluency, body language, eye contact and gesturing, they will have an opportunity to practice designing, delivering an effective presentation in front of a live audience.
The Computer Lab will provide computer access and support for all youth involved in the Center’s enrichment programs.
Using critical thinking skills and collaborative communication, the Computer Lab will help youth make educated choices, solve problems, and make informed decisions.
Students will use multiple processes to manage computer activities so they can develop, create, complete projects and perform tasks necessary to accomplish their goals.
The lab will encourage youth to be independent and confident on the computer for research problem solving and instructional support, when applicable.
