The Baltimore Youth Opportunity (YO!) Center located at 1212 N. Wolfe Street has been open for one year and is part of Baltimore's YO! Network that serves almost 2,000 Empowerment Zone residents, ages 16 to 21. Possible cuts to the U.S. Department of Labor's budget put the continuing support of these centers at-risk. Congressman Cardin will tour the YO! Center, meet some of the youth being served, and see first hand how this grant is providing vital support to the community's young people.
