Ocala Youth Academy celebrated not only Independence Day, but our independence as well. We are committed to giving our staff an environment where they feel supported and encouraged. To celebrate Independence Day, we hosted a delicious summer cookout with all of the summer classics. We are grateful for our administration team. 

The equine program volunteered at Second Chances Barn. The youth assisted in various areas from grooming to stall maintenance, developing their skills in a team work environment. The equine program participants are gaining emotional support and life skills. Our barn is a happy place for learning.
