MyCom Youth Corner

May Highlights The spring session of Maker Club at the Parma branch of the Cuyahoga County Library ended May 9. One of the May programs featured a choice of stations including Duct tape, Green Screen, Builder and Art. At the final session, Youth made Everbloom art pieces with different materials including fabric, gems and markers that they could give for Mother’s Day or keep to decorate their rooms.

The R Rules career and life skills program at the Valley Forge and Parma Senior Discovery Centers ended May 24 with a family dinner and a youth presentation on the R Rules curriculum and homemade beach ball ice cream.

MyCom Youth Council held a summer planning meeting on May 21. Students gave input on activities for the summer, including visits/tours to the Young Adult Resource Center, the Safety Training Facility at Tri-C West and Cleveland State University. Youth are in the initial stages of planning the second annual MyCom Moves! event which was held at Anthony Zielinski Park last year. This FREE community fitness event will again feature Zumba and Yoga lessons.

Youth Opportunities Unlimited is processing youth registrations for jobs all over Cuyahoga County.    Tri-City youth have been notified of potential employment in our area.  We are hoping that many youth have success in their jobs this summer!
