How the first-of-its-kind NEO Youth Center will help young people – and the community overall
Anxiety, chronic depression, hunger, loneliness and uncertainty.
Many children and young adults face these challenges – and many others – every day in Nevada County.
Bright Futures for Youth and its core programs – The Friendship Club, NEO and SAFE – are committed to the next generation. From after-school programs and life-skills lessons to providing safety-net services, Bright Futures for Youth is making a difference to several hundred young people in the community.
The latest effort is the new NEO Youth Center scheduled to open in late-October. The first-of-its-kind Youth Center in Nevada County will offer young people a place to connect, develop friendships, share experiences and get help if needed for very real struggles.
The NEO Youth Center will include an area for conversations and games, a café with healthy food choices, a music room, an arts and crafts area to learn and expand skills, a small stage for live performances and a patio for get-togethers.
Bright Futures for Youth Executive Director Jennifer Singer will detail the NEO Youth Center, how you can get involved – from donating to the capital campaign and volunteering – to the importance of investing in our youth.
