Positive Youth Development July 2022

Expansion of PYDE’s community partnership Sheboygan United continues to lead to new opportunities for Extension outreach and youth programming. Sheboygan United will invite staff from the Aging Disability Resource Center to join our leadership team so that we can be mindful of access issues and resource gaps for disabled and senior individuals as we plan resource events. The HMAA requested a focus on elder resources in our upcoming resource fair at the Hmong Summer Festival. Mead Library Direct met with PYDE to discuss hosting a Sheboygan United resource event. In the course of that meeting, common priorities emerged regarding providing teen programming for an established school year audience on early dismissal Wednesdays, potential partnership with Library youth staff and PYDE to provide / co-create that programming, and availability of the library’s Teen Center for youth outreach.
