Please help keep the shelves full

Working with all our clients to better serve them. Our networking group is continually reaching out to better serve youth and to display their activities, dates and times. We ask youth to stop by often to see what youth serving groups are offering in your community. This calendar will help groups plan and reduce event overlap with hopes to allow participants to attend everything they each have to offer.

If you are a youth service group, please join our network and share with planning the 2020 year.
