The Wa-A’Yas Community Center in Kamiah will be open as an option for youth age 12 and over with free time on their hands on Nov. 18 from 6-8 p.m. In an effort to fill a much needed void for a safe place to frequent and programming for the teens in our community, UYLC Youth Advisory Board (YAB) is hosting a volleyball open gym night.
This event is part of a larger effort by the UYLC YAB. Through focused discussions, they determined that there were not enough healthy and safe activities for their peers in the community. They presently offer one activity per month, with an eye on providing activities every weekend.
This active group of community minded youth has formed partnerships and applied for grants to be able to achieve this goal. They welcome new partnerships, feedback, and ideas. They can be contacted at Upriverylc@gmail.com.
