Youth Village Program
In November 2007, the YTF presented the Youth Village After School & Summer Program in Ft. Walton Beach with a ball
machine for their twice a week tennis program. Between 8 and 20 youngsters participate in the program each tennis day.

after school participants.
The Youth Village After School & Summer Program was formed in 1999 for the purpose of creating a safe place to provide
various educational and recreational services to the children of the greater Ft. Walton Beach community.
Children are admitted without regard to race, color, sex, religion or national origin.
The Summer Arts/Education Program consists of academics during the morning sessions
and The Arts during the afternoon sessions. The afternoon session of the summer
program consists of workshops including writing, acting, dancing and singing that inspire
creativity, confidence, character building and leadership. This culminates in an end of
summer production which is open to the public.
Tennis activities are conducted at two courts at a nearby condo complex. Certified tennis instructors,
Natalie Bogar and Anthony Roberts, conduct the tennis activities.
