First Glance

First Glance is a youth center that operates in the Kenmore neighborhood of Akron. Kenmore is our home, our family & our community. For over 19 years, we’ve hosted a wide variety of programming for students of all ages. We offer teenagers and young adults a safe place where they are loved, valued and ultimately, through Christ, we provide them with hope. We have seen over 5,000 different students come through our doors and leave as a part of our family, empowered to reach their potential & become who they were created to be.
