Talent on Display: A Year of Performances & Special Events
Throughout the year, the Youth Center delights in hosting events that feature its members. For example, a February tradition at GCYC, Black Youth Story, is a performance-based celebration of Black culture, history and accomplishments from a youth perspective. Such events offer opportunities for youth to celebrate the occasion and showcase their talent to the community.
