Mayor’s Youth Guide is a tool to a summer of fun, learning and adventure. With this guide, we hope to make this summer the best ever for our city's youth. Inside you'll find a number of programs for children and youth of all ages, from preschool to young adults. Many of the programs in the guide are free to low-cost. There is also a convenient listing of dozens of sites across the City for the free summer meals program.
