Willimantic’s New Teen Center Opens Downtown, Empowering Local Youth

We’ll be opening basecamp for evening teen programs including our new Youth Leadership Communities. Think a shared interest group like a club but with a lot of mentoring on building team, setting goals, fundraising, and teaching budgets so they can grow their group and use our space as home. We’ll be looking for folks to help with evening programs so stay tuned.

New Base Camp

Project Imo has officially opened the doors on a new office and programming space in Willimantic, CT!
This was in anticipation of an amazing youth workforce development contract as well as a natural part of our evolution as an organization. In January, our Board of Directors approved a 5-year strategic plan to open a full youth and community center in town in 2028. This new office is a huge step toward that ambitious goal. We’ll be at 924 Riverside Drive (744r Main Street) in Willimantic.
