Welcome to Hearts For Youth, Inc

Hearts For Youth, Inc (HFY, Inc.) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization based in the town of Alexandria, NY which is dedicated to providing opportunities for students through after-school and summer programs to teach life skills, so youth in our community will become healthy, educated, respectful, and productive citizens. We reach over 400 youth annually through our numerous programs such as cooking classes, sewing classes, book clubs, photography, kayaking, fishing, golf, painting, and crafts. The target population is all school-age youth although some of our programs are designed for birth-preschool ages. More than 65% of the children engaged in HFY are from lower-income families, so we work to offer programs at no or very low cost to participants.
