X-Factor Home School Physical Education

The YRCC offers a low-cost weekly physical education class for children enrolled in home-school to ensure that participants receive training in Health and Fitness as part of their studies. Classes teach the fundamentals of warm-up, physical activity, teamwork, health education, and nutrition all while partnering with local organizations to enhance and expand learning opportunities. 

X-Factor is scheduled on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30-11 a.m. during the fall and spring semesters.

Bridge the Gap (Teens and Seniors) 

NEW to YRCC is the "Bridging the Gap" program that connects teenagers ages 10 - 15 with senior citizens. The program's goal is to increase interaction between groups of people who do not normally interact. The groups meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Fayetteville Adult Center and the Yvonne Richardson Community Center. Teens and adults interact with each other by playing board games, and sports, conversing with each other, and more.
