Welcome to Oak Ridge Youth Development School

 

Oak Ridge Youth Development Corporation is a 501c3 of the Oak Ridge Missionary Baptist Church that was established in 2013. Our mission is to prevent the academic summer slide of youth. Through various partnerships we provide a physically, socially, emotionally and academically safe environment for the summer.

We invite you to peruse our entire website to learn more about our school and what we strive to accomplish through contact with each and every scholar who enrolls in our program.
