The BrickHouse

What is The BrickHouse?

The BrickHouse provides a safe and welcoming environment where young people (6th-12th graders) can grow, learn, thrive, and contribute. We provide a space where youth can develop positive relationships and are offered opportunities for personal growth--physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

The BrickHouse has new summer hours!

The BrickHouse is open each week from 3 to 6 PM on Monday through Thursday.  The BrickHouse will not be open on holidays and will mostly follow Fort Wayne Community School's schedule.  Be sure to join our Facebook group to stay up-to-date.

At The BrickHouse, you can enjoy video games, board games, foosball, pool, crafts, and so much more!  Luna, the Beta fish, lives at The BrickHouse and would love to meet you!

The BrickHouse is FREE!

40 Developmental Aspects of Youth

In an effort to identify the elements of a strength-based approach to healthy development, Search Institute developed the framework of developmental assets. This framework identifies 40 critical factors for young people's growth and development. When drawn together, the assets offer a set of benchmarks for positive child and adolescent development. The assets clearly show important roles that families, schools, congregations, neighborhoods, youth organizations, and others in communities play in shaping young people's lives.



We prioritize the safety and well-being of our members, staff, and volunteers. We take proactive measures to ensure that our facilities are safe, monitored, and secure.


We believe in creating a welcoming environment that celebrates diversity and values each individual's unique experiences and perspectives.


We promote a culture of respect and mutual understanding, where all individuals are treated with dignity and kindness. We take responsibility for our actions and hold ourselves and others accountable for creating a positive and supportive community.


We encourage young people to express themselves creatively and explore their passions, whether through art, music, writing, or other forms of self-expression.


We believe in lifelong learning and seek to provide opportunities for young people to grow and develop their skills and knowledge.


We believe that having fun is an important part of life and strive to create a fun and engaging environment for young people to enjoy.
