The biggest, most heartfelt thanks to Piscataqua Landscaping and Tree Service for such a great career exploration field trip! Rob, Kelly, and Paula treated the group to refreshments, a wonderful tour, questions and answers, inspiration, and a hands-on activity! We learned how to create a beautiful container display and got to take them home to enjoy all summer. We can’t thank you enough for your warmth and hospitality!

KYC’s 2022 Prom!

i May 10th by
Guess what last Wednesday was? KYC MINI PROM! Did you ever think prom could be planned and executed in one week? Well, we are here to tell you it’s possible! It all started with a box of beautiful gowns donated to the KYC last week and well… you know how the story goes! Teens had a great time dressing up, socializing, eating, taking pictures, and of course, dancing! We held a contest to earn the title of KYC Prom Protégé, where teens could choose to speak for one minute on their vision for a positive future. We had no idea that over 15 teens would stand up in front of a group of almost 40 to speak. We awarded one teen with the title of Prom Protégé; congrats Julie! The evening ended with dessert, tiaras, and a balloon drop! What a successful evening! Thank you to all the teens who helped plan our first ever Prom!

Cheffing-It-Up and Woodworking!

Yesterday we played “What Do You Meme?” which was hilarious! We also started some woodworking projects and did a baking activity with Diane. Students who participated were able to bring home a warm apple crisp to enjoy with their families. Cheffing-It-Up is a group favorite and it’s always exciting when we can offer it!

General Fun at the KYC!

i Apr 11th by

Last week we worked on finishing up our Global Art Project for Peace to send to Morocco soon. Shelly brought dirt themed activities for us- we started some seedlings, repotted and separated a plant, made ooblek, and overall had a great afternoon!

We also just recently discovered that we have a lot of KYC teens are good at, and enjoy, chess! So  we held a chess tournament, which was a tough competition!

We made gourmet pancakes for snack last week! You should have seen the creations these teens dreamt up. It’s always fun when we can offer Cheffing It Up!
