What is Corner65?
Corner65 is a refugee, youth-led program geared to spark creativity, community engagement, and overall health & wellness.
Corner 65 started in 2017 with 30 students seeking after school extracurriculars. We started by listening to the requests of students that wanted to explore more of their hobbies, talents, and athletics that weren’t available to them due to various barriers. The original 30 students led us to rapid growth of over 100 refugee youth from ages 8-17.

WHAT'S ON THE CORNER
Youth Leadership & Workshops
Corner65 is initiated by its youth. With our Youth Advisory Council the students have the mic. This program allows youth leaders to advocate for their peers in what kind of programming will occur with guidance from our program director and managers. These youth council leaders set the pace of what we will be learning each year based on their peers' votes and interests. Corner65 then connects with local organizations, businesses, and schools to partner to expose students to their options long term.
Athletics & Wellness
Corner65 runs multiple sports programs for the students. Soccer is our main hub. We currently have 2 soccer teams, and are growing. With Soccer being our first to offer, we are expanding to others as well. Girls in the Game provides us with turn key body positive programming for girls to participate in the sports they vote on. Corner65 also looks to get outdoors as much as possible in the summertime for bike rides, hikes, and team sports.
Corner65 kids LOVE exploring all forms of arts. This upcoming year Corner65 will explore improv club, culinary arts, and storytelling through canvas painting. Many students love putting their work on display and we look forward to sharing their art with the community.
