Quality of Life: Programs for Youth

April, 1994

In 1994 Northgate Housing Inc. (NHI) partnered with the Boys and Girls Club to apply for a federal drug elimination grant in order to offer extracurricular and academic programs for youth right on the property, to give Northgate’s children alternatives to getting into drugs.  The project received enthusiastic support from across the community, including the Congressional Delegation, the Burlington Police Department, and the principals of Flynn, Hunt, and Burlington High School. The youth programming that started with this effort continues today — an unusual feature that grew from the resident leaders’ care for their community.
