We are trying to raise $1,500 to fix some roofing damage in our community center so we can open again. The inspectors of Hartford ct will not let us do anything until we fix these problems. We raised $450 from our fundraiser we are $1,050 away from our goal. If you can donate $5 or $10 that would be great it puts us a alittle closer to our goal. You can give donations on this site type in $$ amount and hit register. We appreciate you taking the time to read this and your donations included is our mission for the center.

When LXY(League of Xtraordinary Youth) Community Center opens again it will be the only Community Center in the Parkville Hartford community the focus will be Health, Music, Art & Dance. It will feature an Art Gallery, Internet Café, Roof Top Garden, and space for community social gatherings. L.X.Y. will provide after school programs dedicated to the enrichment of the cultural and artistic freedom of its Parkville/Hartford community.

L.X.Y. will reach a diverse demographic of youth through instruction, outreach and new age innovative programs.We stress the importance of giving a voice to all Youth in our community and will work collaboratively with artists and organizations from Hartford to define innovative ways to show the beauty and essence of our youth to help empower them to make a change in society. The theory of youth safe space suggests that the development of a distinctive physical space is crucial to tackling the issue of youth oppression and to the making of empowered and creative citizens who think globally, but act locally. The LXY center of Heath, Music, Art and Dance seeks to cultivate and utilize a physical space that gives youth a license to 'speak truth to power', to act freely and openly in an environment that respects and breaks down lingual, ethnic, racial, class, gender, generational, and neighborhood barriers.

LXY is a space envisioned to generate strategies for youth decision making and collective action. By creating a space that facilitates artistic achievement, business ingenuity, health awareness, and progressive arts education and entertainment, this community center is poised to become an important cultural asset and institutional resource to the city of Hartford and beyond. How will the space function? 1. Cultural: Events launch parties, Concerts, Open Mics, Dance Battles, Art exhibitions, Film festivals, Panel discussions, 2. Business: Organic Coffee House, Internet cafe, t-shirt shop, Roster 3. Education: Tutoring, Bboy Camp, ESL, 4. Training: Dance, Art, Facilitation, Youth development, Social media 5. Administrative: UnderGround Coalition 6. Environmental & Health: Martial Arts, Yoga, Meditation, Community Rooftop garden, solar energy
