F.A.Q.

What is YouthCity? / ¿Qué es YouthCity?

YouthCity fosters positive youth development in Salt Lake City by providing out of school opportunities for social, emotional, skills, character, and citizenship development in an inclusive environment. YouthCity serves Salt Lake City's young people with innovative and enriching activities created with input from participants. The programs are located in city community centers, schools and parks, where young people can have fun and learn new skills in a structured setting. YouthCity currently includes after-school and summer, arts education, employment, sports, government and community involvement. YouthCity was created in 2000.
