We invite students ages 9-17 and their families to "Swipe Right Night": A Youth Programs Open House on Tuesday, March 12 from 4-pm at 83 Prospect St., Waterbury.
Jointly hosted by Waterbury Youth Services' staf and member students, this event is the perfect opportunity to learn more about the agenc's free after-school programs. Youth will have 15 minutes to observe each program. If they like what they see, they can stay for the duration of the class. If they don’t, they can “swipe right” and move down the hall to observe the next after-school program in session.
Enrollment is free and open for “Linking Academics to Life (LAL)” and “Girls Who Code” for high school students.
- Linking Academics to Life: College, career and life-readiness after school program for high school teens.
- Girls Who Code: Based on the nationally acclaimed Girls Who Code program, this new after-school club for high school girls is aimed at closing the gender gap in Information Technology (IT).
- 4-H Mentoring: This is a year long prevention program for youth ages 9-13 designed to assist them in acquiring knowledge, building character, and developing life skills in a fun learning environment. Program activities: dance, creative arts, karate.
Free refreshments, food, and prizes. For more information or to RSVP, contact Marianne Malanaphy at 203-573-0264 x320.
