A fundraising & awareness event for MCCOY on Thursday, November 11 from 6 - 8 PM at Tinker House 1101 E. 16th
The Maasai tribe in East Africa has a long, rich history deeply ensconced in having both legendary warriors and an unwavering commitment to their children's well-being. The traditional greeting passed among the tribe's people - from its fiercest heroes to its wisest elders - is, "Kasserianingera," which translates to, "And how are the children?" The expected response is to share that the children are well - that the tribe's purpose to protect their most vulnerable members is being carried out with compassion and conviction.
Our mission at MCCOY is to make sure that is true of our local youth, and what better way to know than through the voices of young people sharing their truths and adults willing to listen.
On Thursday, November 11 from 6 - 8 PM at Tinker House 1101 E. 16th, you'll join MCCOY staff, board members, and meet young people connected to our mission. We will offer hors d'oeuvres, complimentary wine and beer and a cash bar, and a roundtable conversation so that teens can tell us how they're really doing in Indianapolis. This is a great opportunity to network and get to know MCCOY - reserve your seat!
MCCOY will host an evening of complimentary wine and beer and a cash bar, hors d’oeuvres, and focused strategies for the well-being of our city’s children to raise funds supporting our work.
During the event, our Executive Director, John Brandon, will host a roundtable conversation featuring Indy-area young people and experts working with and on behalf of young people in our community - all sharing their perspectives on “How Are the Children?”
We want to stay connected with you! We have volunteer opportunities and are always looking for fresh perspectives. Your support makes our work more meaningful and helps increase our outreach efforts with Central Indiana youth and families across the board.
Your attendance will help fund the programs and services that MCCOY provides to hundreds of youth programs that benefit thousands of children every day.
The Marion County Commission on Youth, Inc. (MCCOY) was established in 1993 as Indianapolis’ youth service intermediary to build a team of programs, services, and supports that will enable all youth in Marion County to thrive, learn, engage, and contribute. We are the organizing force bringing local nonprofits, community partners, government agencies, faith-based organizations, and schools together to provide impactful opportunities to our young people in our city.
Your support makes our work more meaningful. Your contributions fund the programs and services that can multiply the impact needed to make a difference in the lives of Indy-area youth. Now more than ever, young people and their families need help connecting to the supports available in our community. MCCOY can do that, with your help.
