The B.F. Yancey Elementary School officially closed in June of 2017. Almost two years later, the Yancey School Community Center opened in the former school building. This innovative model for a community center creates space for collaboration between local government and non-profit organizations to provide programming and services in support of community health and wellbeing. The service footprint for the B.F. Yancey School Community Center includes Southern Albemarle, and the adjoining areas of Nelson, Buckingham, and Fluvanna Counties.
In this episode, we speak with Ed Brooks, the Program Coordinator at the Yancey School Community Center, and learn about the past, present, and future vision for this important place.
