Fall is not only time for back-to-school, but also for the start of many extracurricular activities. We strive to raise well-rounded children by letting them pursue their talents. Dance troupes, art classes, youth groups, piano and voice lessons, sports teams — each of these and more provide children of all ages not only opportunities to hone talents, but also to interact with other children who share similar interests.
The Piedmont Parent Enrichment Directory lists some of the Triad's offerings when it comes to after school activities. Individual, special events are listed on our calendar. We also sometimes receive announcements about area youth groups, such as the Burlington Youth Council (BYC), an organization made of young men and women who dedicate themselves to community service projects.
BYC brings youth from all over the county together to help better the community. Currently, the BYC is looking for new members. Its membership is made up of students in grades 6-12 in Alamance County, as well as the home school community. To be a member, students must attend meetings and community projects regularly. The BYC has also taken trips to the Carolina Panthers football and Carolina Hurricanes hockey games. If you have a child interested in becoming a member of the BYC, you are invited to visit burlingtonnc.gov/byc to complete an application. You can also call 336-222-5134 for additional information.
Do you know of other community organizations and enrichment programs we could add to our directory or events we could include on our calendar? If so, I'd love to hear from you. Simply drop me an email with the details.
