The Youth Connection - After School Fair

We volunteered to help the 10th Annual After School Fair held on beautiful Belle Isle in Detroit on August 20th. Belle Isle
is the largest island park in the United States comprised of 985 acres, and the tenth largest municipal park in the United States. Although many of the islands once beautiful structures have fallen into disrepair, and the park is under-utilized it is still a great place for events like this.
Organized by Youth Connection CEO Dr. Grenae’ Dudley, the 10th Annual After-School Fair featured registration for hundreds of after-school programs, foster care agencies, Department of Health services, immunizations, health information, substance abuse prevention information and lots of activities for children young and old. Among the hundreds who came together with a common goal on Belle Isle there was also an attempt to break the world record for largest dodge ball game ever.
