Mayor Thomas M. Menino invites Boston youth to jump-start their summer planning during February school vacation week at “Boston R.O.C.K. IT!!! Launch into Summer” at Emmanuel College’s Yawkey Center gymnasium, on Wednesday, February 22nd from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Organized by Boston Centers for Youth & Families (BCYF) and sponsored by jetBlue, this event offers young people and their families a fun school vacation week event and urges them to think about summer plans now by providing summer information throughout the event and in “goody bags” distributed at the end so their parents or guardians can start enrolling them in summer programming.
The R.O.C.K. IT!!! will have a “pep rally” feel with audience participation and interactive games. There will also be a special guest or two who can reinforce the message of staying active and engaged over the summer, a few raffles and a goody bag for each attendee with resource materials including BCYF’s Summer Guide 2012 and trinkets.
All Boston residents are welcome. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
