C.O.D.E.S., formerly labeled Wilton Y2Y, is a high school branch of Youth to Youth International. With an acronym that stands for community, outreach, dedication, education, and success, C.O.D.E.S. is a teen club where youth come to band together as peers in order to make their world a better and safer place. As a group, C.O.D.E.S. strives to live up to its name in many ways: community is developed through weekly meetings which are comprised of teen-led discussion and team-building games. Outreach occurs during the many community service activities that are planned and organized during group meetings. Dedication - C.O.D.E.S. is dedicated to staying drug and alcohol free while educating themselves and others on the importance of their choices. Creating an environment of success is the final goal of C.O.D.E.S. and is accomplished by exploring what it means and what it takes to be a successful participant in the world.
C.O.D.E.S. exists out of a growing desire for social, emotional, moral, and mental development and well-being of each teen participant as well as every individual with whom the group serves and comes in contact with.
C.O.D.E.S. is not merely a club...its a lifestyle!
C.O.D.E.S. meets weekly at Trackside Teen Center on Tuesdays from 6:30-7:30pm.
All Wilton Students in grades 9-12 are welcome!
