Now that Y.O.U. is fully settled into new headquarters and youth center at 1911 Church St., the organization is inviting Y.O.U. families and friends to join in celebrating the new space through a morning of interactive activities, give-aways, and tours on May 13.

This free, family-friendly event begins with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 9:30 a.m. From 10 a.m. to noon, youth and families will have a chance to
• Join a kids’ cooking class in our demonstration kitchen
• Tour the learning garden with a Y.O.U. high schooler and then plant a souvenir to take home
• Add artwork to a collective canvas to be displayed in the Maker Space
• Color a bookmark and take home a book to celebrate literacy
• Practice teamwork skills through games in the backyard.

Free parking will be located in the lot on the southeast corner of Church Street and Dodge Avenue.
