Youth Appreciation Day: Youth Appreciation Day is an annual event that is held in June.  This event recognizes all the youth in town that have utilized their time and energy to help out and volunteer in the community in which they live. This includes all the many youth who help at the Youth Center as well as the youth who assist in many of the Youth Services volunteer programs. The evening is filled with awards, gifts, wise words from a guest speaker, and a cookout. Also at this event, 2-4 graduating seniors are acknowledged for receiving college scholarships funds from JNHYC, Inc. 
Last Day of School Party: This is an annual Summer Kickoff event held for Youth Center members. Each year members can count on a great start to their summer with a cookout, carnival games, inflatables, a photobooth and more.

6th Grade Welcome Week: At the start to every school year, we hold our Welcome Week with different activities each day, just for 6th graders, to give our newest members a taste of the activities we offer at the Youth Center.

Jeffrey Middlemiss Stop the Silence 3 on 3 Tourney: This great event takes place at the Youth Center every fall to bring awareness to the issue of addiction in our community, and to raise money that goes towards programs helping with addiction recovery. The event includes guest speakers on the topic of addiction, and raises money for scholarships for students to further their education.
Special Olympics: The North Andover Crusaders utilize our building/gym for their Special Olympics basketball program from November to March. The program brings together Special Olympics Athletes and Unified Partners building friendship, character, leadership and inspiring greatness in all who participate.
