Parramore Teens Say Goodbye to Summer with CityTeenz
Back to School Jam Luau
More than 400 teenagers from the Parramore
Heritage Community will attend the end of summer
celebration for the City of Orlando’s CityTeenz
summer program. As a part of the Parramore Kidz
Zone initiative launched earlier this year by
Mayor Buddy Dyer and District 5 Commissioner
Daisy W. Lynum, CityTeenz provided scholarships
to teenagers living in the Parramore community
to attend unique summer programs.
Throughout the entire summer, the City of
Orlando’s Families, Parks and Recreation was
able to coordinate scholarships for more than
300 Parramore children and teens to attend
programs such as acting lessons at the Mad Cow
Theatre, classes at UCF’s School of Digital
Media and camp at Bridge to Independence.
The Back-to-School Jam Luau will include
games, food and entertainment, including
performances by local teenagers. Teens will also
receive free backpacks and school supplies for
participating in CityTeenz. For the first time,
a participant in the CityTeenz program and a
Jones High School graduate will receive a
