On Oct. 1, the Corpus Christi Commission on Children and Youth will host a free networking event for all organizations, groups, boards, teachers, instructors and anyone who educates, works with, or provides services to youth and their families in our community.

At the Community Connections event, organizations will be asked to provide a short presentation on their organization, share ideas through a questionnaire and help the Commission compile a comprehensive list of service providers to be available for youth and families in the community.

The event will take place at the Del Mar Economic Development Center (across from Ray High School) from 9 a.m. to noon (registration will begin at 8:30am). Pre-registration is encouraged, which ends Sept. 28.
