BRIGHT FUTURES FOR YOUTH
200 Litton Drive, Ste. 308
Grass Valley, Nevada
Bright Futures for Youth will open a new NEO Youth Center at the former Silver Springs High School campus near the Nevada County Fairgrounds, providing after-school and occasional weekend activities and events for youth in western Nevada County. The center address is 12338 McCourtney Road in Grass Valley, CA 95949.
The new Youth Center is scheduled to open in early 2022, following a modest renovation to the space.
The Youth Center will offer youth and young adults a place to socialize, make new friends, explore new interests and passions, and even get help with their homework in a comfortable and safe environment.
The Youth Center is available for 11- to 25-year-old residents and will offer a long list of activities and events, from art workshops to live music and open-mic nights in a supervised setting. Several hundred youth participate every year in the NEO program’s after-school, in-school, summer and weekend activities and events.
The NEO Youth Center includes three portable buildings, a kitchen, an office area, and 6 acres of sports fields and open space, providing flexibility and the room to grow, if necessary. Bright Futures for Youth is leasing the campus from Nevada Joint Union High School District.
Since The Friendship Club and NEO merged in 2020, creating Bright Futures for Youth, NEO program participants have used the Distance Learning Center facility and have been meeting temporarily at the Bright Futures for Youth building on Litton Drive, and some activities have not been held because of COVID safety guidelines.
