MyCom Youth Corner

July Highlights

MyCom Youth Council and Summer Days youth workers met with former Cleveland City Councilman Zack Reed. His goal was to get youth voice on how to solve the epidemic of violence in our communities. 11 youth discussed violence and safety in their own communities and then gave voice to their thoughts and ideas when asked what one thing they would do to stop violence.

MyCom Youth Council went on a Questing Field Trip to the Cleveland Metroparks Canalway Center. They followed the rhyming clues to find the treasure. There was a cookout after the quest, which featured our youth as chefs. It was a fun teamwork activity.

The Tri-City MyCom Steering Committee met on Tuesday, July 10 at the Hanna Building to finish reviewing the Neighborhood Work Plan for our three communities.

The Summer Days drop in ACTIVITY program is back! This FREE drop in youth program started on Monday, June 4 and will run through Friday, August 10, 2018. The program is from 11:00am until 2:00pm, Monday through Friday, except for July 4th. This fun program provides activities, social and emotional learning, a free lunch and is for youth ages 5-14 (younger if accompanied by parent).
