Mayor Walsh urges Boston Youth & Families to plan for summer now!
February 4, 2014
Mayor Martin J. Walsh and Boston Centers for Youth & Families (BCYF) invite Boston youth and families to BCYF’s “Summer Warm-Up”, a free, fun filled event during February School Vacation Week to help jump-start summer planning. It will be held at the Reggie Lewis Track & Athletic Center at Roxbury Community College on Wednesday, February 19th from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.
Organized by Boston Centers for Youth & Families (BCYF) the Summer Warm-Up is a high-energy event that will make participants feel like they are at the Olympics with music, youth performances, interactive games, and most importantly--summer resources. This event provides young people and their families with a fun school vacation week event while urging them to think about summer plans now. Summer information will be highlighted throughout the event and in “goody bags” distributed at the end. 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. Attendees are encouraged to celebrate their cultural heritage in the true spirit of the Olympics by wearing clothing or bringing a small flag from their country.
If you are a program or organization that will be hosting programs/events this summer that you would like to highlight, let us know! We will be putting together resource bags to be given away to youth and families attending this event. Please bring 1,000 copies of your summer information to BCYF’s Administrative Offices, 1483 Tremont Street, Roxbury Crossing, ATTN: Meagan by Friday, February 14th at 5pm.
