Reception and Pre-Party 
Youth to Youth staff and teens will host an open house of our new space on Friday, October 28th from 5pm-7pm!
118 E. Main St
Columbus, OH 43215  
Join us for light refreshments and brief tours of the space the night before the 40-Year Anniversary Celebration!
As the new building is in the center of downtown, you will find street parking available.  Parking is paid digitally via the “ParkColumbus”  or “ParkMobile” app.  The variety of nearby, walkable restaurants and entertainment spaces create a great opportunity for hanging out afterwards! See “alumni-coordinated gatherings” for more info!
Alumni-Coordinated Gatherings
In true Youth to Youth fashion, everyone’s invited!
After the open house (details above), five alumni who span the decades of Y2Y’s history are coordinating a casual get-together for their fellow alumni.


Immediately following the open house, alumni will be hanging out at Hofbrauhaus in Grandview, located at 800 Goodale Blvd Columbus, OH 43212

Join alumni Chip Livisay (80s), Tom Reither (90s), Sarah Ho (2000s), Jacq Hackett (2000s), Damon DiSabato (2010s) and so many more alumni for a Friday evening hangout! No RSVP required. 

This location boasts a neat atmosphere, great soft pretzels, and all the Y2Y Alumni! It also shares a parking lot with the hotel for out-of-town guests so those without transportation can easily attend the gathering.  

Please note that the alumni-led gatherings on Friday are not hosted or sponsored by Youth to Youth, and each alumni joining should expect to pay for any food, beverages or activities.  
To share an alumni gathering or for more information, contact Stephanie Christie at or 614.224.4506 X 149
