*5/3/22 message regarding facility rentals:

Greetings all,


For those members of our community who, pre-pandemic, had regularly utilized our Northwest Youth Corps/Twin Rivers Charter School Campus for various activities, the last two years of being unable to use our facilities because of public health safety requirements have been difficult and disappointing. And it has been the same for our staff, whom for much of the pandemic, worked remotely with only occasional, highly structured visits to campus.


We are pleased to share that effective May 16th, we are excited to have our staff, faculty and students reoccupying our Office and Charter School facilities on a full time basis. We will continue to have strict public health protocols in place in all indoor spaces, including distancing, utilizing appropriate masks in all public spaces, utilizing our significantly enhanced mechanical air purification system, and testing (when necessary).


NYC has prided itself in hosting affordable and accessible rentals to our larger community for more than 15 years and we look forward to being able to safely reopen our campus to rentals soon. Our intension (and hope!) is that we are effective and successful in safe office and school operations, and that in late summer, we will be in a position to reevaluate reopening the campus to our many community partners. Until that time, we deeply appreciate your continued patience.


Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with your questions and concerns.

We offer a variety of spaces for almost any occasion. Our community room (2,183 square feet) accommodates 200 seated guests, audience style,  and features a presentation screen and podium.


The gymnasium (3,404 square feet) can be used for sports team practice or additional event space for up to 377 people


We have a soccer-field size natural grass sports field adjacent to Laurel Hill Park.


Two executive conference rooms can seat 10 - 15 people each and are great for board meetings or retreat break-out sessions.


One carpeted training room is furnished with two-person wood-toned tables, cushioned chairs, projector screen, sink/coffee area and refrigerator, and can hold 34-45 people.


A 40 Kilowatt solar array reduces our energy consumption and a 1.02 kW demonstration array on the front lawn lets students and visitors see a real, working, PV system up close. Electricity produced is metered back to the EWEB grid.


A solar thermal hot water heater, automated lighting, efficient flushing devices, and touch-less sinks allow us to consume fewer resources without compromising comfort.


Our roof is “Cool Roof Ratings Council” approved and meets Energy Star criteria— reducing the need for air conditioning by reflecting up to 90% of the heat that normally enters a building through the roof, while large clerestory windows let in abundant natural light.


Our campus is located in the peaceful Laurel Hill Valley just 3 minutes away from I-5. We are served by Lane Public Transit (route 27) and neighbored by beautiful Laurel Hill Park. We are also just six miles away from the 15,000-acre Buford Park and scenic Mt. Pisgah, and a half mile from The Willamette River bike Path. Our address is 2621 Augusta Street, Eugene, OR 97403.
