Our Annual Pool Party Mixer
Celebrates Youth of Every Color!
Every summer in late July, our Young People of Color mentors throw an end of summer pool party mixer at Yellow Spring's Gaunt Park Pool.
We invite youth of every color to bring their families and friends to meet, play and get to know each other better. Free entrance, snacks and music make for a "splash!" of a time.
