A Home Away From Home

We are a non-profit community organization that welcomes over 1000 youngsters and teenagers every year with programs that specialize in Education, Leadership and Prevention tailored to the youth of the community.  Many of our program leaders started out as teenagers in the same programs they now help run! Thanks to a wonderful team of volunteers (70+ every year) we have been developing good leaders, honest citizens and joyful youths that truly care about their community and beyond since 1997…Don Bosco style!

For you to be young is enough reason for us to Love you.

DBYLC a true beacon of love in the community

A simple act of caring creates an endless ripple…

Run, jump, shout, but do not sin.

Saint John Bosco popularly known as Don Bosco, was an Italian Roman Catholic priest, educator and writer of the 19th century. While working in Turin, where the population suffered many of the effects of industrialization and urbanization, he dedicated his life to the betterment and education of street children, juvenile delinquents, and other disadvantaged youth. He developed teaching methods based on love rather than punishment, a method that became known as the Salesian Preventive System.

Don Bosco’s Oratory Model

Don Bosco believed in 4 pillars of stability in a young person’s life.  The 4 pillars are a Home, a School, a Church and a Playground. The DBYLC combines these four fundamentally important elements to help support our youngsters.
