Tucson Youth Development is hosting an open house Wednesday where it will introduce the organization’s new executive director.

Jay Slauter, principal of Tucson Youth Development’s ACE Charter High School, will take over for Arnold Palacios, who is retiring July 31.

The organization, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, helps at-risk youth with education and workforce training.

Slauter has been with Tucson Youth Development since 2002, starting as a youth opportunity program coordinator.

Replacing Slauter at ACE will be longtime Tucson educator Art Menchaca.

The open house event starts at 11 a.m. and will be held at 1901 N. Stone Ave.
