December 1999, G.E.M. Ministries received a $106,000 grant from the Warrick County Community Foundation and Lilly Endowment, Inc. to construct a youth center called “Studio Bee” in Boonville, Indiana. Our community center opened in January 2001.
The 9,600 square foot facility contains a game room, diner, two classrooms, kitchen, office space and gymnasium. In 2009 alone, 5,505 people have used the services offered at Studio Bee.
Studio Bee’s objective is to provide a place for youth to excel physically, mentally, spiritually and socially. One of the ways this is accomplished is by providing a safe place for children to meet after school to play air hockey, pool, foosball, board games and more with friends.
