MaliVai Washington Youth Center
In May 2008, the new MaliVai Washington Youth Center opened its doors at 6th and Payne streets in the Durkeeville neighborhood of Jacksonville, FL. This $3 million state-of-the-art facility has allowed MWKF to expand its impact and serve more children and families in this economically depressed area.
About the Outdoor Facilities:
The new recreation facility features eight lighted tennis courts (including a center court with grandstand), three mini-courts and a basketball court. In addition to the TnT Program, additional recreational programs held at the center include play days, community clinics, exhibitions, tournaments and more.
About the Youth Center:
The center also features a multi-media room, community room, four classrooms, teen room, fitness room, locker rooms and office space for MWKF staff. A JSO Sheriff’s Stop Station is also housed at the facility. The Multimedia Room includes a computer lab with 20 computers, an audio visual area and a comprehensive library with more than 1000 new books and movies, including reference books and a career/college preparatory corner.
