The launch of the New Haven Youth Map puts the spotlight on a wealth of youth programs available to New Haven’s parents and students.

Yesterday evening, Ward 1 Alder Sarah Eidelson ’12 announced the release of the New Haven Youth Map, a database where parents can search for a variety of youth programming for their children. The website is the end result of a two-year project, on which the Board of Alders collaborated with the Board of Education, United Way and other service providers to consolidate the information in one user friendly website.

The city unveiled the revamped New Haven Youth Map Wednesday, a tool that allows users to navigate all the activities and programs available for youths.

This kind of tool has been central to the goal of Boost! since it was first conceived five years ago. Boost! is the New Haven Public Schools/United Way/City partnership that connects city schools with existing community resources to deliver “bell-to-bell” and after-school support, resources and experiences  students need to succeed – in the classroom and the community.

New Haven’s Davenport Children’s Community Garden in the Hill was abuzz with activity as volunteers weeded, raked and added fresh dirt to raised beds, which will soon be thriving with fruits, vegetables and herbs, such as eggplant, basil, strawberries and cucumbers.
