The City of Apalachicola Youth Center is located at the Mayor Van W. Johnson, Sr., Recreation & Community Service Complex inside the former Apalachicola High School Gymnasium.  The renovation of the facility and its current operation as a youth center was made possible through a public-private partnership between the City of Apalachicola and Kids United Together, Inc., a Florida Non Profit Corporation headed by Helen Willis-Escobar.
