NEO – New Events & Opportunities
NEO is a non-profit organization focused on empowering youth to make healthy lifestyle choices. Our Youth Center is a drop-in, out-of-school time facility offering an array of activities, workshops, and events. NEO strives to create a safe, fun, and positive environment for all youth and young adults between the ages of 11-25 years old. We aim to transform lives by connecting members with the experiences, resources, and supports they need to succeed.
One of the things that makes the NEO different from many other youth centers is the long-time focus on being a youth-led organization. NEO was founded by teens and young people continue to drive the program today. There are several youth leadership teams and we primarily rely on teen and young adult employees and volunteers.
