Peers not Fears at the KYC!

i Jan 23rd by

Lorraine @peersnotfears visited the kyc again this month to lead us through some mindfulness and self-care conversations and activities. We discussed what our “baseline” for self-care looks like, and why it’s important to know our own baselines. We discussed and explored the idea of gratitude and how incredibly powerful it is to practice gratitude. In that vein, we are so grateful for the amazing community members who volunteer their time to teaching and leading the young people we serve!

What’s Going on Around Here!

Mock job interviews, puzzling, and mini competitions (including thumb wrestling!) are just a small example of some of the fun that’s been going on here at the KYC!

Improv Night!

i Jan 21st by

We had so much fun during our Improv Night, led by Nancy Porter! She taught and led many different games in a way that felt safe and accessible to all who participated! It was so fun to see how creative our teens are, and see some emerge as improvisational geniuses! We can’t wait to have her back next month! @nancy.m.black

Resolutions and Goals for 2024

i Jan 5th by

A small group of teens spent Thursday evening exploring their goals and/or resolutions for 2024. Our teens were so reflective, thoughtful, and inspiring with their goal setting. We heard both shorter term and longer term goals, and discussed steps to take in order to achieve these, and also roadblocks they may encounter along the way. Once again (and day in, day out), the teens we serve at the KYC inspire and impress us. Keep working toward your goals, keep your head up, and know that you have so many adults rooting for you!

Last Night Wolfeboro 2023

The KYC hosted a booth at the Last Night Wolfeboro festivities! We offered face painting, glitter tattoos (don’t worry! they are temporary 😂), corn hole, trivia, and a candy guessing game! Congratulations to Bradley who guess the number of Lindt chocolates correctly!

Gift of Lights at NH Motor Speedway

i Jan 2nd by

Over break, we drove to the NH Motor Speedway to tour the Gift of Lights! We had a blast seeing millions of lights, and ended the tour with cookies, cocoa, and toasting marshmallows over the fire pits set up outside. 🎄 ✨ 🍪

Movie Night at Wolfeboro Public Library

Thanks to @wolfeboro.public.library for hosting the KYC for a holiday movie night! We had a wonderful, festive time watching The Muppet Christmas Carol. We enjoyed dinner, snacks and watching a movie in a theater-like environment.

We always love our afternoons with Lorraine @peersnotfears! The leadership we see emerge from our teens is just amazing. Do you think you aren’t a leader? You can be! It’s a skill you learn, and our world needs all different types of leaders. Lorraine teaches us this through games, activities, and conversations. The problem solving and teamwork that happens during these days with Lorraine is so exciting and encouraging! Our young people have the skills to be leaders, they just need some guidance to find and use these skills!

 

 

 

 

Thanksgiving at the KYC!

i Dec 4th by

We had another wonderful Thanksgiving meal as a group last week! Before we are we shared what we are thankful for, as we do every year. This year teens said: friends, kyc, video games, family, being healthy, muscle cars, oxygen, freedom, good food, living in New Hampshire, and playing music. We enjoyed a special dessert made by teens, games, and a group played music. We always look forward to this program and had a very special time. We hope you all have a happy Thanksgiving!
