This year, Women’s Center-Youth and Family Services (WCYFS) Promising Pathways program will host its second annual youth event TAY End Game (formerly known as “A Path to Success”) on Thursday, Sept. 5, 2019 at the Teen Impact Center from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. This event is free and open to the public. Youth are encouraged to attend. Come enjoy a day of fun, food, activities and more. This event will feature a live music performance by local jazz, rock and soul band Seven23. There will be resources and opportunities in Education, Employment, Housing, Personal Effectiveness and Well-being, and Community Involvement and Volunteering. Youth who participate in all the activities can enter to win amazing raffle prizes. The ‘end game’ for youth who are transitioning to adulthood is to learn, grow and thrive.
