Today, Citywide Youth Coalition invites the public to experience a new look and a revitalized outlook and outreach. The success of an organization is evidenced by the dedication of the core members, and the ability to grow in initiative and inclusiveness.
Citywide Youth Coalition has much to celebrate with a new look that reflects the principles and outcome of our organization. But beyond that, we hope to strengthen our organization with participation of individual community members, providing an added layer of transparency and inclusiveness in decision-making and outcome.
“Citywide has been working in New Haven since 1976, to bring together after school programs and summer camps to better support youth, and now we see there is a role for everyone in our community to help all of the young people in our neighborhoods to succeed,” said Rachel Heerema, executive director.
The Coalition has planned a Come Together Breakfast on September 21, an Youth Arts Celebration on October 22, and a workshop series for high school students and families in November called ‘College, Career & Beyond.’ “Seriously, everyone can contribute something - time, talent, an encouraging word, money - to support these kids. They need us more than ever.”
