Summer is here and school is out! Once again, the staff at YMSNC will be running summer programs for all of our Mentees under the tent in Lockport, at Hyde Park in Niagara Falls and at the Niagara Falls Boys & Girls Club. In partnership with the Niagara County Youth Bureau, lunches will be provided Tuesday-Friday under the tent, and snacks will be provided at all Agency activities through collaboration with the WNY Food Bank. After eating, we’ll jump into a variety of interesting topics and themed In-Services, including: “How to be a Healthy You!”, Teamwork, “Social Assets”, the traditions and cultures of different counters, conflict resolution and other age-appropriate, developmental workshops.
This is a great opportunity for all of our children and youth to enjoy crafts, stories and creative activities that support learning and adolescent development. We hope our Mentees will join us! Contact the office (434-1855, 285-6680) with any questions.
