Normal Operating Hours
Generally, our office hours are Monday-Friday from 9-4pm.
Due to the nature of our community based work, appointments are recommended.
Drop In Night
Youth interested in participating in the Aurora Youth Options program should attend a Drop-In Night to complete the Youth Survey.
Every Wednesday 4:00-6:00pm at the AYO office in the Hoffman Building at 1298 Peoria St. Aurora, CO 80011.
Note: On Wednesday May 16th drop-in night will only be from 4-5pm.
AYO follows Aurora Mental Health Center's (AuMHC) scheduling protocols. This means that if AuMHC is closed, AYO is also closed.
If inclement weather conditions call for a necessary closure and AuMHC closes, AYO will also close. The closure announcement will be made to local television channels: CBS 4, ABC 7, NBC 9, and FOX 31 and will appear under the title "Aurora Mental Health Center." These channels serve as the primary resource for weather closure information.
If both Aurora and Cherry Creek Public School Districts close/cancel school, AYO activities will also be canceled. Activities include Homework Help and Tutoring and Drop-In.
Trainings and Weekend Activities
In the rare event that an evening training or weekend activity must be canceled, every effort will be made to contact all affected participants. In addition, the voicemails of both the event/activity organizer and the main AYO phone line will be updated with necessary information.
