Youth Services

Join us for a community conversation:

Tuesday September 12, 6:30pm
at the Manchester Police Athetic League
409 Beech St, Manchester, NH

Join us in learning about the YouthBuild model including the ‘why’ , ‘what’, and 'how' of a successful YouthBuild program.

Our discussion will be led by The Massachusetts YouthBuild Coalition, a nonprofit organization that supports YouthBuild programs throughout New England.

This event and effort is organized by the City of Manchester Office of Youth Services.

We hope to see you there!
