Celebration of Urban Youth Postponed

Celebration of Urban YouthYouthCARE’s Celebration of Urban Youth event, scheduled for Sunday, May 6, 2018, has been postponed. As shared at last month's State of the Agency, special event fundraising is one of the costliest ways for nonprofits to raise money. Since YouthCARE is anticipating a deficit for the 2017-18 fiscal year, the Board of Directors and staff didn’t feel right producing an event where only a portion of the proceeds would go to YouthCARE’s programming. Rather, we are focusing on raising money from individuals, foundations, and community groups, where 100% of the funds donated will go to YouthCARE. 
If you were planning on sponsoring our event, purchasing a table, or buying a ticket, please consider making a gift, in that amount, to YouthCARE. Donations can be made online through our website. Your donation will help us reduce our deficit and continue to provide needed services to youth.
We will bring our “Celebration of Urban Youth” event back at a future date – when YouthCARE really has something to celebrate!

Since 1974, our commitment has been to:

  • Offer educational experiences that foster cultural awareness, understanding and appreciation.
  • Employ youth in meaningful positions that also offer further education and career exploration.
  • Provide experiences and mentoring to develop youth leadership abilities.


YouthCARE's Volunteer Program provides a wide variety of opportunities for adults to get involved.

  • Program Volunteers work directly with young people in one of YouthCARE's three programs: Camp Sunrise, YouthLEAD, or the Young Women's Mentoring Program
  • Policy Volunteers serve on YouthCARE's Board of Directors or on a Policy Committee.
  • Special Event Volunteers provide support to YouthCARE by assisting with special events such as fundraisers, Camp Sunrise Workdays, or by sharing a special skill or expertise such as carpentry or graphics arts.
