Wilmington Youth Center for Inspiration, Recreation and Education (WIRE) to Give 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 will have a new welcoming space to find support and resources this spring.  Communities In Schools of Cape Fear is moving its afterschool program from their former location in the Harrelson Center, to 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) will support 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 will offer 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 will be invited to be a part of the center, creating opportunities for even greater collaboration among all those committed to helping our kids succeed.
