Mayor Walsh urges Boston families to plan for summer now

March 23, 2015

BCYF's FREE Summer Warm-Up Resource Fair April 11th highlights programs.

Mayor Martin J. Walsh and Boston Centers for Youth & Families (BCYF), the City of Boston’s largest youth and human service agency, invite Boston youth and families to “BCYF Summer Warm-Up”, a free, fun filled resource fair to help jump-start summer planning.  It will be held on Saturday, April 11th, at the BCYF Tobin Community Center, 1481 Tremont Street, Mission Hill, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

“The summer is an important time for young people to be learning, engaged, making new friends and connecting to caring mentors,” said Mayor Walsh. “The Summer Warm Up is an opportunity for Boston families to learn about all that BCYF has to offer this summer and make plans now.”  

The goal of the event is to connect Boston children, teens and families with information about BCYF’s summer camps and programs, youth employment opportunities, teen nights and activities, and community events during the summer. The Summer Warm-Up will have a carnival-like atmosphere with balloons, music, activities and most-importantly--resource tables.  There will also be raffle prizes including $100 scholarships to a BCYF summer program.  Most programs are enrolling and this event provides all kinds of information about what’s available.  Don’t get left out! 

Boston residents of all ages are welcome.  Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult. Before you arrive, take a look at BCYF’s Summer Guide 2015 to see what programs will be represented at the Warm-Up at Boston.Gov/BCYF. Hard copies will be available at the event.
