The goal of the summer program is to give the youth experiences they might not be afforded otherwise!

Plus, they make some great friends and meet some important mentors!

With partnerships all over the city and county, from Harrisburg Area Community College’s York campus to the York City Fire Dept., nearly 150 youth ages 14-18 are gaining job skills, earning money, and having fun, enriching summers! Check out this slideshow for some highlights!
