Columbus mayor unveils slate of youth summer programs to reduce violence


Mayor Andrew J. Ginther hosts a press conference Thursday outside the Driving Park Community Recreation Center announcing Columbus youth summer programs meant to stem violence.

Pools closed. Youth programs were canceled. Seasonal employment was hard to find.

Amid a rampaging coronavirus pandemic last year, youngsters across Columbus likely found themselves without much to occupy their time when school let out for summer.

Mayor Andrew J. Ginther said Thursday he’s determined to prevent that from happening for a second year in a row. Speaking at a news conference outside the Driving Park Community Recreation Center, Ginther unveiled a slate of youth summer programming in the city made possible by public/private partnerships.
