WILMINGTON, DE – New Castle County Executive Matt Meyer will join REACH Riverside CEO Logan Herring, The Warehouse’s Director of Programming Patrick Ryan, and members of the Howard High School student body and teens representing the Warehouse for the presentation of a $10,000 NCC Cares grant to support The Warehouse’s programs.
In January 2020, Wilmington will launch a teen-led co-working space in the former Prestige Academy building on the southern end of the Riverside neighborhood. The building will serve as a home for more than 50 youth-serving partner organizations with the goal of becoming a programming site where teens can fully explore, collaborate, discover their passions, and develop skills needed for employment in today's economy.
