Volunteers are required to complete the following:
• Volunteer Application Form
• Background Check (Fingerprinting)
• Provide names and information for personal reference checks
• Review and sign Trinity Church’s Children’s/Youth Protection Policy

ESCALON YOUTH CENTER
1328 Escalon Avenue, Escalon, California
The Escalon Youth Center is a safe place for teenagers in Escalon. It is available for students in middle school and high school, and is open Monday through Friday during lunch and after school. Closing time is typically 6:00 PM.
Escalon Youth Center is set up with pool tables, a ping pong table, gaming systems, couches and chairs where students can hang out and be comfortable, corn hole boards, some musical instruments, sets of bistro tables, and so much more. All of this is FREE for students. There is no charge for entry. The youth center does not require students to check in and out. They are welcome to come and go as they please.
A simple snack bar is also available for students to purchase beverages, packaged snacks, and a few heated food items.
Nathan Haley serves at the youth center's on-site manager. He has served in this capacity since November 2021. Todd O'Neill was the youth center manager before him, serving from its opening in August 2016 until summer of 2021. We have a number of volunteers who come in to work the snack bar, help with projects, and supervise students. A good number of them are senior citizens from our church and the community who want to make themselves available and impact the lives of students in our town. We always have room for more adult volunteers.
Escalon Youth Center is owned by Trinity Church, which manages this site as a ministry to the town of Escalon. It is funded by members of Trinity Church, many other churches in town, local clubs, as well as by personal donations. We are blessed to have many people partner with us. These generous donations keep this ministry up and running.
Donations for the Escalon Youth Center must be made payable to TRINITY CHURCH. Please note "EYC" or "Escalon Youth Center" on the memo line to be sure your contribution goes directly to the youth center account.

The Backstory of Escalon Youth Center
THIS PORTION OF OUR WEBSITE IS STILL UNDER CONSTRUCTION.
PLEASE VISIT US AGAIN SOON FOR THE BACKSTORY OF THE ESCALON YOUTH CENTER.
The Escalon Youth Center is a story of redemption. Every part of it was orchestrated by God. It started with a dream that God dropped in the heart of Pastor Jim Davis in September of 2013. Pastor Jim said that God showed him a mental picture of the old Escalon Motel and He revealed that it was to be used for ministry to students in our community - a safe place for them to hang out and be mentored.
