Juneteenth Youth Events

The BCCO encourages youth to take the lead in organizing activities and events to enjoy during the Juneteenth celebration. Whether it’s a talent show, educational program, cultural activity or something else, we’d be happy to make room on the upcoming Juneteenth program. If you’re not the organizing type, we also welcome youth volunteers to help with existing events and activities. This is a great time to add volunteer and leadership experience to your accomplishments. To find out more on how you can participate, call (432) 305-0369.
