The R.P. Lee Youth Center services the Peterson Complex, a military community that includes Peterson AFB, Cheyenne Mountain and Schriever AFB, giving military families a safe and secure environment for their children.

It offers a variety of programs: School Age Program, Youth Sports, Pre-Teen and Teen Programs, and Instructional Classes. These programs follow the guidelines set forth by the United States Air Force, the Boys and Girls Club of America, National 4-H, National After-School Alliance, National Association of Education of Young Children, and the National Youth Sports Coaches Association.
