April Youth Event at UC Clermont

For our April event, we took some youth and young adults to UC Clermont for a campus tour, a presentation, and lunch.  All the youth had a great time.  The event was a good opportunity for youth who were on the fence about attending college, giving them a chance to explore career paths and  to see if college may be a good option.  One of the most interesting things was learning more about financial aid.  Did you know some students have the option to go to UC Clermont for absolutely no charge?  That’s right, financial aid can sometimes cover everything.  If you are a youth or young adult and are interested in looking into college and missed the April event, please contact me as we will be working to plan another UC visit.  My contact information is at the bottom of this article.

Also, not to forget our upcoming events, on May 10th from 11:30am to 3:00pm, we are hosting our first Independence City.  Independence City is a simulated “life on your own” game in which youth will learn basic life skills and how to overcome barriers.  This event is free for all Clermont County youth and will be held at the Child Focus Training Center.  Wrap Camp is slated to start up again in June.  This is a summer day camp for Wraparound youth.  Last year we went to the YMCA once a week.  We also played laser tag and went to Woodland Mound.  We are looking for Program Aides for Wrap Camp.  These positions are paid!  If interested, contact Danny Little by email dlittle@gcbhs.com or by phone (513)305-3471.
