Cheers to 50 Years!

On November 6th, 2020, Kenneth Young Center celebrated our 50th anniversary. We kicked off a year-long #KYC50For50 Campaign, in which we highlighted (more than) 50 events and stories we shared together. Each feature highlights a part of the work we're able to do today because of the care, dedication, and support that our communities have shown us to get us to this milestone. Please enjoy the video recap below of our celebratory campaign. As we now gratefully honor 51 years of service to our communities, we are welcoming our next 50 years of impact together. We couldn't be more honored to do this work with, and for, each of you.
