Families new to the United States have a chance to connect with local organizations.
New Woodbridge and Comite Hispano de Prince William, a new Hispanic Civic Association in Woodbridge, are presenting a Prince William Youth Fest that’s set for May 18.
It’s being held at Kilby Elementary School, 1800 Horner Road in Woodbridge, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
According to Comite Hispano de Prince William President Joel Martinez, the program is centered around youth and the community.
“We’re going to have food trucks, activities for our children, and much more,” Martinez said.
Non-profits, government agencies and faith-based groups are helping organize the Prince William Youth Fest, according to Supervisor Frank Principi.
In addition to offering entertainment, it will allow community members to learn about resources and programs.
“The first annual youth fest is designed to bring together middle school and high school students — and their families — to provide them with a range of opportunities regarding scholarships, summer jobs, summer camps, mentoring programs, skills training and parenting classes,” Principi said.
