Empower teens, encourage families, expand worldview

Regretfully the New Berlin Youth Center (NBYC) at 34 North Main Street is closing. NBYC’s founder and director, Kevin Phillips, is physically unable to continue all that is required to lead the organization. The NBYC Board unanimously approved the listing of the property for sale. NBYC was able to accomplish much in its two-year history thanks to the teamwork of many community members. The goal of the center was to empower teens, encourage families, and expand world view. Our journey as an organization included teen open houses, youth-led basketball skills camp, Halloween window painting, WhatsApp Wednesdays (pairing youth with senior citizens for cell phone tips), Boy Scout special events, and multiple upgrades to the facility. Thank you to the many volunteers who have contributed to NBYC. Questions may be directed to nbyouthcenter34@gmail.com. Posted May 2, 2024.
