EWDD General Manager Jan Perry with YO! Watts YSC Director Hugh Carter at the December 21st open house
The YO! Watts YouthSource Center celebrated its new location at 1773 East Century Boulevard by donating more than 400 bags of healthy food to local families and hosting a holiday dinner party for 175 guests on December 21, 2017.

EWDD General Manager Jan Perry toured the three-story facility with Hugh Carter, director of the YO! Watts YouthSource Center.

The center includes a gym, a computer lab and staff offices.

“The new location is beautiful,” she said. “Hugh and the staff have
done a wonderful job of making it feel like home. I expect good things will come out of this new location and even greater numbers.”

Upcoming plans include a media room that will give kids a place to work on video music production and coding, along with future plans to transform the rooftop into a workout space for the community, Hugh said.

The new location gives the YO! Watts team more room to operate and provide more programs.

“It just allows us to really follow through with what the YouthSource Center should be,” he said.
