Thank you to all who attended and participated in my Summer Youth Resource Expo this past Sunday.

Hundreds of young people and their parents were able to speak to over 40 participating organizations, receiving information on summer programs and internships in the areas of education, music, dance, culture, arts, sports, business, and more.
