Just Hangin' Out Summer Activities

Just Hangin’ Out (JHO) is a program by the YMCA of Three Rivers designed to provide a safe and inclusive place where youth ages 13-24 with varying abilities can interact with their peers, practice positive social skills, engage in recreation opportunities, participate in hands-on learning, and work on personal development. Through the school year, we provide a family style meal each week, as well as a recreational component and a planned activity to engage the youth and build on those social and life skills.  


 All events will run from 4:30pm-7:30pm and will include dinner. These events will be free of charge.
