With open hearts and open minds, UYC & our community can rally our resources to not only lift kids up, but set them on a trajectory for accomplishing amazing things. Remember, the future of our children impacts our community’s opportunities and success for decades to come. Together we can build bright futures for our youth. This is a movement. Whether you’re most comfortable contributing time to help achieve our program goals, money to help us grow, or energy to drive this engine of change, we need you on our team. Together we can build bright futures for our youth. "Without the support of the community, open minds, and a willingness to explore the opportunities before us, this inspiring project would not be possible." -- Justin T. Weller, Lead Project Manager Motto: Open hearts, open minds and open doors. Take action now!
We open the door to students and provide them a safe place to hang out, have fun, study, play games, participate in programs such as arts, crafts, movement, music, essential life skills and much more. We also have free tutoring, meals, snacks, personal hygiene products & laundry services. As they come to experience a sense of belonging at the UYC, we then have the opportunity to open their minds to new programs that improve not only educational outcomes but set them on a trajectory to be engaged members of this community. Ultimately, that’s how we achieve open hearts, open minds and open doors. That is the opportunity before us.
