MAYOR’S VILLAGE INITIATIVE LAUNCHES 2019 TEENS UNITE SUMMER SERIES
Series will offer a safe place for local youth to gather on Saturday nights.
West Palm Beach, FL (June 6, 2019) On Saturday, June 8, the City of West Palm Beach will launch the 2019 Teens Unite Series! – a free series of summer events for youth ages 12 to 18. This program was created in collaboration with several youth development programs and community centers in the north end of the city, such as Gaines Park Community Center, Coleman Park Community Center, Pleasant City Youth Empowerment Center, Salvation Army Northwest Community Center, De George Boys & Girls Club, Urban Youth Impact, Norton Museum of Art, Digital Vibez, The West Palm Beach Police Department & The Police Athletic League.  Teens Unite will take place every Saturday June 8th-July 27th from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
 
The events will feature free social activities, such as music & dancing, pool parties, video games, creative workshops, movies, basketball, a talent showcase, and more! Teens Unite falls under the umbrella of the Mayor’s Village Initiative (MVI), an initiative that focuses on creating opportunities and reducing violence of African American boys and young men in the city.
 
“Our ultimate goal is to keep our youth safe. The Mayor’s Village Initiative intends to change their life outcomes by creating more opportunities and offering a variety of services to our youth.” said Kevin Jones, Coordinator of Community Initiatives.
 
Teens Unite will bring together youth from different communities that have historically experienced conflict. The event offers youth an opportunity to have fun in a safe environment and potentially discover similarities that can prevent violence.  “Providing programs that offer a safe space for our youth is imperative to bringing the community together and offering opportunities to all within our city. We look forward to the positive impact Teens Unite will have on the youth of West Palm Beach,” said Mayor Keith James.
