Reimagining & Renovating the Midtown Utica Community Center
Midtown Utica Community Center (MUCC) offers programs including summer youth employment program, youth employment services, tutoring, an after school program, summer camp, youth sports teams and a farm education program. These programs primarily serve the refugee, immigrant and low-income youth in a severely distressed neighborhood in Utica. MUCC will rehabilitate the rear wing of their community center allowing for MUCC to expand their current programming and their employment services to include adults. It will also support the launch of a program with Utica City School District to help orient newly arrived refugee, immigrant and newcomer youth into the community.
