Art Project is back after a teeny, tiny hiatus, and an itty, bitty switch-a-roo.
Join Kellen and Marie on Monday at 5:00 to decorate antique skeleton keys! We will be sending these to kind humans that have donated to the Key.
Then, on Thursday, come on down to make a birdhouse. Hopefully Kellen and I will have all of the lumber cut, all you need to do is come down, assemble the house, and paint! Everything will be provided and (as always) will be free.
Come to the NEW KEY this Saturday from 12-3 if you want to help with demolition and remodeling! We’ll be knocking down boards, removing nails, cleaning up rubble and other destructive things.
What to Wear/Bring:
-Grubby clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty or torn
-Water to drink
-Extra tools such has hammers or drills or screwdrivers

Going into a week of gratitude and thanks giving, we know that we have so much to be appreciative of. The community of Northfield has never stepped down from a challenge, and they have continually been willing to open both their minds and their hearts to the work around them that needs to be done to make this community a great place for EVERYONE. Never enough words exist to thank all those who give of their time, of their talents, and of their resources. THANK YOU so much to everyone who gave to the NUY during Give to the Max. We are so grateful to you all for believing in the power of youth voice and the creation of a caring community! ...
“Hello, my name is Haley Heiner. I am the Co-President of the Northfield Union of Youth, also known as 'The Key.' I have been attending there for a while now and I’ve honestly never felt more at home there. So many wonderful people have accepted me there and I’ve gained amazing new friendships. The Key has helped me through so much regarding mental health, social skills, financial problems, and more. Without The Key, I don’t know where I would be today, and so many youth could say the same. The Key is the longest-running youth-led and youth-empowering organization recorded in the United States and I want it to stay that way. So many kids, including me, need a safe space like The Key. I'm so grateful that I have a place like this, and I am beyond grateful that our community cares for this organization.”
