Youth Go Offering Resources:
1. This Thursday will be the first installment of “Youth Go Food Sharing.”
What is Youth Go Food Sharing? We want to make sure our youth and their families have enough to eat during these challenging times. We hope to offer this weekly while schools are closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Youth Go families can choose to have food delivered to their houses or pick food up at Youth Go.

Need advice, have a good joke to tell, just want to chat with a trusted adult, you can connect with Youth Go staff m via Facebook, Snapchat, Discord, and email.
The health and safety of our youth, their families, and our staff members is always at the forefront of our decision making process. Beginning Tuesday, March 17, Youth Go’s center based and school based programs will close until further notice. This very difficult decision was made out of caution and based on information and recommendations from our governor, the CDC, and our local Health Departments.
We are in uncharted territory and there are many unknowns at this time. During this challenging period, we will do our best to use Facebook and our website (www.youthgo.org) to communicate information and updates. Staff are currently working on ways to continue to provide support moving forward. We are working on a system to share food with our families starting later this week, we will create opportunities for staff to continue to provide connection/guidance/advice to our young people using technology, and we will share other community resources available as we discover them.
We talk often about the “Youth Go Family” and that is exactly what we are. We will continue to do our best to take care of each other in the weeks ahead!
Stay safe and be well,
