This Youth Community Center is located adjacent to Lackland Independent School District's (LISD) Community Library and Media Center. The hub of the center houses administrative offices and training, kitchen, and building service functions. The entry vestibule leads to the reception desk which has visual control down the two main corridors to the activity rooms and gym spaces. The corridor to the south houses activity rooms for children and pre-teens. School rooms are grouped around a commons area. Pre-teens have an activity and clubroom near the administrative area. Off this corridor is a gym/multipurpose room that serves as dining and general activity space. Teens also have a separate entry along the east-west corridor. All activity rooms have doors leading to age-appropriate play yards. Corridors and gyms are provided with natural light from clerestory windows.
