Wilmington Youth Center for Inspiration, Recreation and Education (WIRE) Gives Area Students a Beautiful New Space

Thanks to a new partnership between Communities In Schools of Cape Fear and the City of Wilmington, area students now have a new welcoming space to find support and resources! We have moved our afterschool program from its former location in the Harrelson Center, to 1102 Orange Street in a newly renovated building on the corner of Orange and 11th Streets downtown, just behind Gregory elementary, Williston Middle, and New Hanover High schools.

The Wilmington Youth Center for Inspiration, Recreation and Education (WIRE) supports the needs of at-risk students and their families by providing positive, daily programming, free of charge.

Not just a safe place filled with caring adults, WIRE offers New Hanover County students, grades 3-12, educational, physical, and mental health support, as well as resources and referrals as needed.

Community service partners across the area are invited to be a part of the center, creating opportunities for even greater collaboration among all those committed to helping our kids succeed.
