A resource fair planned for the Cardinal Valley area aims to inspire Lexington youth to be agents of change in the community.
 
“Bridging Families: A project to empower families and youth by connecting them to community resources,” will be held from 5 – 8 p.m. Monday, Feb. 23, at the Fayette County Extension Office.
 
It is free and open to the public. Participants are urged to bring their whole families. A light meal will be provided.
 
Parents will have an opportunity to find out about community resources such as schools, youth services for children, education, employment for parents, health services, the city’s Parks and Recreation programs, and more.
 
The program for middle and high school students will include guest speaker Dr. Bob Long, who will promote leadership and skill development while answering their questions about how they can engage in their communities.
 
There will also be fun and games for smaller children.
 
Transportation is available for those who need it. A shuttle will be provided from Village Branch Library and Cardinal Valley Elementary School to and from the event for those who have a transportation voucher.
