The Leu Civic Center, Inc. is a cornerstone of youth development in the City of Mascoutah, Illinois. The Center is a United Way Agency, and its mission is to plan, organize, coordinate, implement, and execute a wide variety of recreational, cultural, social, and civic programs for the youth in Mascoutah, Scott AFB, and surrounding communities. The Center provides a safe place for structured family support and human service based on the needs and interests of all members of the community regardless of race, gender, religion, ability-level, or financial conditions. The Center focuses on youth development by providing a safe environment, building self-esteem and friendships and fostering a sense of belonging to the community. In order to fulfill this mission, the Center must operate a safe, well maintained faculty. This Facility is not only a safe heaven to youth programs and activates. It is used by local community groups and serves as a public emergency shelter during severe weather conditions.
