Synergy’s Youth Resiliency Center (YRC) is located on the company’s Youth Campus. The YRC can be accessed by youth from across the community. YRC provides a safe environment where youth can receive support, work on job and life skills, use their state of the art facilities, and just have fun! The YRC offers help and support by giving young people the opportunity to learn life skills through meeting in groups and participating in activities like cooking classes, financial education meetings, and physical activity groups. They also go the extra step of providing a variety of free art classes in a state of the art studio setting. YRC was recently the host for the most recent ArtsKC Encounter event The Art of Resiliency in January. Arts Encounter members were given a behind-the-scenes look at the YRC, and it was clear the healing impact that expression through art can have on all of us.
