Join us for the Champaign County kick-off of Welcoming Week 2019! Bring your family and friends for an evening of dynamic international music and entertainment, mouth-watering food, community art-making, giveaways, and an opportunity to welcome our newest neighbors in a safe, fun, and welcoming atmosphere! The event will be held in the parking lot of the Orpheum Children’s Science Museum in Downtown Champaign. This event is free and open to all.

Welcoming Week, an annual series of events held in communities across the United States, brings together immigrants and U.S.-born community members to get to know one another and build community cohesion. This year, events will take place from Friday, September 13 through Sunday, September 22. Visit the University YMCA’s Welcoming Week webpage to see a full list of events or to volunteer.
