YEP Field Day

Join us for our 7th annual Field Day! You’ve never experienced Field Day quite like this!

In past years, this event was known as YEP Olympics or YEP Wii Bowling Tournament, but this year, we are trying something a little different.

Show off your free throw, corn hole, and relay skills on Friday, August 12th, at the R.D. Scinto Corporate Drive campus in Shelton.

We will start and end our night at Il Palio. More details will be available soon, so hit INTERESTED and check back soon.

Corn Hole
Egg and Spoon Relay
Musical Chairs
Frisbee Toss
Basketball Free Throw
and more…

That’s right, you can pay to cheat at our field day. Many of our games will have an option to trade your dollars for a better shot.
EX:)Wish you could stand closer to the basketball hoop when making free throws? Each dollar will let you take a step closer.
*All money raised from the pay to cheat option will go to our Back-2-School backpack program fundraising effort.

YEP’s mission is to connect and engage emerging leaders in their 20’s & 30’s in activities that support our community and the Greater Valley Chamber of Commerce while making the Lower Naugatuck Valley region and its surrounding communities a more energetic, exciting, and active place to work and live.

YEPresent @ Red Lotus

The first YEPresent of 2015 will be held on Thursday, January 8th from 5:30 – 7:30PM at Red Lotus in Shelton.

Join us for a couple of hours of casual networking and fun. Connect with local peers and neighbors.

Please bring some cash with you as we will be raising money for a local family who is facing possible foreclosure and a pile of medical bills. For more information, visit http://www.gofundme.com/is07m4  and share #savenurseginny online.

We are looking forward to an amazing 2015!

Pedal for PCRC Race to Benefit Valley Families

PCRCThis Sunday, July 15th is the Pedal for PCRC race. This is a community friendly cycling event which begins in the PerkinElmer parking lot (710 Bridgeport Ave, Shelton) and tours throughout the Valley. Participants can register to cycle for 15, 30 or 62 miles. The fundraising deadline is September 1, 2012.

The Lower Naugatuck Valley Parent Child Resource Center has been serving families since 1975. They are the leading provider of behavioral health services to children and families in the Lower Naugatuck Valley and surrounding towns, serving more than 1,200 children each year, including many who suffer from serious behavioral and emotional problems, trauma, abuse, and neglect. Through a comprehensive range of programs – Clinical, Family Support, Early Childhood and Community Partnerships – they help these children and their families overcome these emotional and behavioral hardships.

This signature event will lead the way with positive mental and behavioral health for kids in our community. The money participants raise will support funding for the PCRC’s state of the art mental health and behavioral programs for kids and families in the Valley and surrounding towns.

Please think about participating in the race for team YEP, donating to the YEP page, or volunteering for the event. Donations can be given by clicking the link below:
