First Glance is a youth center that operates in Akron's Kenmore community on Kenmore Blvd. We have programming for students from grades 6 to 12 and for young adults ages 18 to 29. We offer a variety of programs which include a recreational night, a young adults program, a skate night, an abstinence program as well as Teen Mom and Young Mom programs. No matter the program or activity, First Glance offers teenagers and young adults a safe place of grace and of unconditional love. Individuals can come in, be themselves, have fun, and learn about God.
Tiny Glancer's Learning Center: Construction Nearing Completion!
First Glance has been working with preschool aged children of the Teen & Young Moms programs for several years. Registering over 100 teen and young moms a year, the need became apparent to work educationally with their growing children. The majority of these children start out disadvantaged. We have the opportunity to impact these children's future in a unique way, unlike any program in this area. Our vision is to provide a Learning Center for ages 3 -10, with the intention of educating the PARENT and CHILD TOGETHER, SIDE BY SIDE, under the same roof.
