Announcements


Welcome to the Youth & Family Development announcements page! Here we will post upcoming events, programs, and hightlights! Check them out and we will see you there!

*Coronavirus Update - Effective as of March 14th 

*Beginning immediately, the City of Chattanooga will suspend all public access and activities at the Eastgate Senior Center and cancel all city-sponsored senior activities until further notice. The CDC has stated that one population at serious risk of getting very sick from COVID-19 are those who are ages 60 and older.

We will also indefinitely suspend the approval of permits for public gatherings and are taking the steps to cancel all currently planned public events. The CDC suggests avoiding crowds as a way to help slow or stop the spread of COVID-19.

Additionally, the City of Chattanooga will suspend all public access and activities at all Chattanooga Youth and Family Development Centers and Chattanooga Library branches beginning on Saturday, March 14 until further notice. Events at the Tivoli Theatre, Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Auditorium, and Walker Theatre are also postponed until further notice.

Department Administrators have created a Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP) that protects employees and residents and continues to provide a level of service to the best of our ability in the face of this emergency.*

For students seeking information about public health in their state, we have created state-specific guides that answer important questions, such as:

  • Which public health professions exist in my state? - An outline of the professions, internships, and fellowships available
  • How do I pay for school? - A list of scholarships for students pursuing public health degrees in each state
  • Where should I work? - Employment data for each major metropolitan area in the state, and statewide resources for area professionals.
