VYH Youth invited backstage with Darius Rucker

Youth from our Independent Living Programs in the Lehigh Valley were invited to soundcheck & backstage at Darius Rucker’s Musikfest show on August 14. Youth had the opportunity to learn about careers in the entertainment industry, with the focus on STEAM – science, technology, engineering, arts, and math.

The Morning Call and 6ABC covered the visit, which was sponsored by PNC Bank.

“They help me out with living arrangements. I have money saved up in my bank account, working on getting a car soon. Everything is falling in place. A couple years ago I didn’t think I was gonna get this far,” said Patrick, one of the youth invited to the show.
