Our Programs

Today’s youth are tomorrow’s leaders, and we see our role in nurturing their potential as vital to their future success. Young minds can struggle to navigate the challenges of our current times. Our mission is to provide positive influences and opportunities for young people in Hart County so that no child feels lost in the maze of growing up.

Who We are

We strive to provide every child with a safe space to learn and grow. To that end, our board and director are continually bringing in the biggest and brightest ideas and people to fulfill the needs of the community.

What We Do

Hart Youth Development Resource Association (HYDRA) was established in 1988 with the goal of creating programming to bridge the gaps in services for Hart County’s youth. For 25 years, HYDRA has accomplished that goal with innovative programs and creative youth projects. HYDRA serves approximately 900 youth each year and is governed by a board of volunteer directors.
