Youth Opportunity Union (YOU)
The Youth Opportunity Union (YOU) will be a visionary new community center for all Dutchess County youth and families, located in the heart of Poughkeepsie, New York. Serving the entire Dutchess County community, the YOU will be a welcoming and inclusive space, where children can play, learn, and grow — from infancy to young adulthood. The YOU will focus on recreational, educational, and healthy opportunities — both physical and mental. It will be a fixture for Dutchess County’s Path to Promise initiative that employs strategic ways to ensure all young people in the county have the assets they need to realize their full potential as they grow into young adults. Based on community input, the YOU’s offerings might include a pool, gymnasium, fitness center, wellness and health services, and a 24-hour childcare center — among many other enriching programs and classes. The YOU will be a safe and vibrant center that values kindness, inclusivity, and respect.
