Art and acting. Music and dance. Sport and Scouting.
Those who heard, and believed, “There’s nothing for kids to do in Warren County,” are encouraged to take a look at the Warren County Youth Network.
The site – www.warrencountyyouthnetwork.org and on Facebook.com/TheWCYN – is a one-stop-shop for youth activities.
Under the “Community Partners” are: Allegheny Community Center, Boy Scouts of America, Girl Scouts of America, Hi-Ed College and University Center, Struthers Library Theater ARTE Program, Warren County Youth Football League, Molly Dies School of Dance, Robinault Media and Design, The Conservatory of Music, Warren Area Student Union, Warren County Summer Music School, Warren County YMCA, Warren County Youth Baseball Softball Association, Warren County Youth Orchestra, Warren Players Club and Warren Public Library.
The organizers do not expect to have reached all or even most of the organizations and activities. Those with youth activities that are not represented on the web page are encouraged to visit the site and email or call (814) 580-3913 to request an addition.
The site is the result of the YMCA’s Whole Health Meeting series. Discussions at these meetings often revolved around the lack of a single place where people can go to find activities for young people.
