Rev. Wm. Lemoyne, Mayor John Sherman, former Assemblyman Robert D’Andrea, Joanne Sciurba, Rev. David Buchanan, Pat Hayes, and Kevin Burch are founding members of the Youth Center. It was originally developed to provide a place for the youth of the Village of Schuylerville to engage in various recreational activities under adult supervision. The initial funding for this project ($40,000) was obtained through Sen. Joseph Bruno’s office.
Numerous organizations use the facility for youth activities. These include, but are not limited too, Little League, Boy Scouts/Girl Scouts, and Schuylerville Family Day. In the power outage of 2007 the Youth Center served as a Warming Site, providing residents with a place to have a hot lunch and stay warm.
