Frequently Asked Questions
Youth Driven Space
Does The Launch Pad Qualify for The AZ Charitable Tax Credit?
Yes, The Launch Pad does qualify for the AZ Charitable Tax Credit. The Arizona State Charitable Tax Credit is a dollar for dollar credit on your state taxes and you can still claim a federal deduction. If you owe $300 to the state and you make a contribution to TLP for $300, you no longer owe the state $300. You can give up to $400 as an individual or $800 as a couple. You can even carry your credit over for up to 5 years. For more information check the website: www.prescottareataxcredit.com
Is The Launch Pad only for “At Risk Youth”?
What ages is The Launch Pad for?
How do you sign up for The Launch Pad?
To sign up for The Launch Pad Drop-In Hours, just come by after school, give us a call, or send us an email and we can give you a registration form. If you want to sign up for Academic Mentoring or Tutoring, you can find the form on our website. If you are interested in our summer camps, internship program, or leadership retreats, all of that info and registration forms can be found under the programs tab. You can also stop by our place and we can give you a printed out registration form to fill out.
Do you need volunteers?
Yes, teens are always supervised at The Launch Pad, even when just hanging out in the Drop-In space.
What’s the staff to teen ratio?
During after school hours there are always at least 2 staff members working and the same is true for any off site program or field trip that happens after school. When we have over 20 teens we have 3 or more staff on and we never exceed 40 teens after school due to the limits of our building. In our educational workshops or trainings it depends on the content and nature of the workshop and those learning experiences tend to have a lower staff to teen ratio.
