Aurora Youth Options Mentor Program and one of our matches were highlighted on Aurora’s Channel 8 News station during National Mentoring Month. AYO's clip explained how important and impactful mentoring is, it also showed how a mentoring relationship can look like and how much fun the pair can have together.

***Please excuse the inconvenience while the outside remodeling occurs. Construction at the Hoffman (City of Aurora) building has begun.The parking lot behind the building will no longer be accessible to park in starting Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017, for the next month or so. The City of Aurora hopes to start having parking on the side of the bulding starting next week. Inside the Hoffman building is Aurora Strong Resilience Center and Aurora Youth Options - in addition the City of Aurora Youth Drop in Center and Public Library.  


 Starting late March we will be doing construction on the elevator for improvements. The elevator will be out of service and not functioning for about 3 to 4 weeks. We apologize for any inconveniences this may cause. We will be hosting homework help and tutoring services upstairs and potentially any other programming that will need to utilize the upstairs space. If you have any questions on where your program or event will be held please feel free to contact AYO. 


    Please be mindful of the “off limits” areas, watch for changes of entrance into the building and parking configuration. Afterward the neighborhood will have a wonderful new park to enjoy!***
