GROUPS & PROGRAMS

Typical programs and activities every week include:

We have at least 2 programs going on Monday-Thursday at the center. Programs that take place at the center typically take place 3:30-4:30 pm. Programs are NOT mandatory, but if you or your student finds an interest in them, they are more than welcome to join at any time.

Mondays

Community Service– serving at Chesterwood Village Nursing Home
Yoga- students will learn the basics of meditation and yoga.
Film Class– information will be coming out about this class soon.

Tuesdays

Community Service– serving at Hamilton Living Water Ministry
Leadership In Training– this group will be led by our partners at Envision. Students will learn skills to be a leader among their peer groups. There will be a focus on not only leadership skill building, but also prevention of drugs and alcohol.
EDGE Study Tables– We will shut down all the “noise” of EDGE and create an environment that lends itself to studying and getting homework done. Peer tutoring will also happen during this time.

Wednesdays

Community Service– serving at the Healing Center
Redlife– this is a faith-based group that tackles hot topics in the teen world. This will be a discussion-based group.
Career Exploration– this will be an 8-week class that is led by our partner, Discover Your Path. The students will be guided through many exercises to help them better understand their options for the future as it pertains to college or career. This will be a small group; 10-12 students will be the max and sign-ups will be first come, first serve. This starts at the end of October. More information about this class will come in the beginning of October.

Thursdays

Community Service– serving at PAWS (animal shelter)
Girls Inc– this program is led by our partner, YWCA. Girls Inc. inspires all girls to be strong, smart, and bold through direct service and advocacy. Their approach will be to address whole girl development that would equip girls to navigate gender, economic, and social barriers and grow up healthy, educated, and independent.
Life Skills– every other Thursday that Girls Inc is not in session, we will select different life skills to highlight.
