    Aurora Youth Options (AYO) begins hybrid programming January 2022.


AYO is excited to offer programming in-person and virtually as of January 2022. With the potential that COVID-19 continues to show a reduced rate of spread, you will have the opportunity to participate in services and activities through either in-house or online platforms.

Drop-in, Homework Help and in-person program communities will take place at various locations throughout the Aurora area, or our new AYO multipurpose room located at 1290 Chambers Rd., Aurora, 80011, just South of Colfax.

To attend in-person activities we ask that you wear a mask and follow all AUMHC COVID-19 safety protocols. These protocols have potential to change frequently, so, we will keep you up to date on any changes that may occur. Please continue to review the AYO website for any updates these updates can also be found through our social media. As changes occur, registered participants will receive a text or email directly.

We are available to help you navigate what may work best for you, your youth or match relationship. Please contact us with any questions comments or concerns you may have. As always working together we will meet the needs of our youth!




AYO's weekly academic support program (open to youth enrolled in AYO) is virtual, and will run throughout the school year each Tuesday from 4:00-5:00pm (except for weeks when school is out of session like winter and spring breaks).  If you plan on joining, please contact Quintavisstyles@aumhc.org
