Youth Resource Expo Postponed Due to COVID-19

BRIDGEPORT, CT – The Bridgeport Youth Engagement Collaborative (BYEC), in partnership with Senator Marilyn Moore (D-Bridgeport) and Housatonic Community College, today announced the inaugural Bridgeport Youth Engagement Resource Expo–which was scheduled to be held on Saturday, January 15, 2022 at Housatonic Community College–will be postponed until further notice.

The decision was made in response to a rapid rise in COVID-19 cases as public health officials predict continued spread over the next several weeks. A new date will be announced when it is safer to convene indoors.

“We want to serve our youth as best we can and right now that means limiting COVID-19 exposure and keeping them safe during this new surge in cases,” said Sen. Moore. “In the meantime, we will continue to engage with nonprofits, advocates, youth and parents virtually with the hopes of convening in person once it is safe to do so.”

Those interested in participating or attending the 2022 Bridgeport Youth Engagement Resource Expo can still use the following registration forms to sign up to receive information about the event or to reserve a space:

Nonprofits can register here.

Parents, caretakers, or youth can register here.
