The first Find Yourself Friday of the new school year will be held on Friday, Septmeber 28th from 6:30- 9 PM at the Milford Youth Center. The event will include a DJ, music, games and food & beverages for sale.
For the third year in a row the Center will collect gently used or new sneakers to be sent over and handed out by Youth Center volunteers in December for youth in need in the Dominican Republic. Youth may bring a pair of sneakers/shoes at the day of the event to get $1 off the $3 admission fee to the event.
We need volunteers to help with monitoring the dance, sign in and food table and set-up and clean-up.
Find Yourself Fridays is a once-per-month event held at the Milford Youth Center on a Friday night. This event gives youth a safe environment to be with their peers and enjoy music, dancing, games and healthy snacks. Find Yourself Friday’s mission is to create a healthy, fun and educational environment for our youth while offering them an opportunity to improve their community. Members of the JAG Youth Council meet weekly to develop monthly themes based on what they feel is an important issue facing the community and give a portion of the money collected to the cause of the month. Find Yourself Fridays have been an enormous success over the last year and half, with over 150 youth attending each month and donating to various charities. Some of these include: Milford Housing Authority, Cell Phones for Soldiers, Best Buddies , Compassionate Care ALS, Kony 2012, Anti-Bullying, Milford Play Initiative, Milford Daily Bread Food Pantry, a sneaker collection for youth in the Dominican Republic and finally for JAG members to attend a Youth Venture Leadership Summit.
