Posted: August 19, 2011     Nancy J Conrad

The close of summer program at the Bird Street Youth Center was a resounding success. Over 700 people attended the festivities on Friday, August 19, 2011. Executive Director, Andrea Kaiser, welcomed the group and expressed her appreciation to the many people who helped to coordinate the the youth center building renovation efforts so that the gymnasium was ready in time for the 2011 Gala.

The Dance Entrepreneurs entertained the group several times and downstairs the youth displayed the beautiful glass art they had made over the summer.  Councilor Tito Jackson weighed in on the importance of the youth center's programming by emceeing the opening of the program.

Acknowledging the youth, their mentors and the staff who have worked so hard to provide a nurturing environment was an important part of the evening.  Guests relaxed in their seats, stood on the outskirts and chatted, exchanged greetings with friends and joined in the many rounds of applause. 

The staff were proud to recognize the accomplishments of their youth, awarding completion certificates to many.  The youth left the ceremonies proud of themselves and everyone came away with a sense that the Bird St Youth Center is really making a difference in the lives of our youth.
