WALC was founded in 2004 by individuals committed to addressing a need and working on behalf of the youth in our community. Wether its assisting at our fundraising events or being a tutor, mentor, coach or showcasing a special talent, we need volunteers! We are looking for community support in all areas of operation and welcome ideas from both our volunteers and members in order to run the most successful programs and meet the exact needs of the youth in town.
