Peers not Fears at the KYC

i Dec 10th by

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!

Visit from Veteran Gary Bent

We had a fantastic visit at the KYC with Gary Bent and his service dog, Huey! Gary is a veteran, having served in both the US Army and Air Force, until he was injured overseas. Gary shared with us the many adventures and challenges he has experienced and talked about how having a service dog is one of the best decisions he’s made! Gary currently helps other veterans in his community. Thanks to Gary and Huey from @operationdeltadog for the wonderful visit this week, in honor of Veteran’s Day!

Kyc’s 4th Annual Kingswood Spook Center was last week and WOW what a great time! We had SO MANY teens and volunteers turn out to help run this Halloween themed event for young children and their family. We offered Monster Sundaes, TONS of games, popcorn, a prize table, coloring contest, campfire with s’mores, and face painting. We couldn’t have pulled it off without the amazing group in the first slide. Thank you for all who helped and all who came to enjoy the fun!

A Visit to the NH Boat Museum!

i Oct 24th by

We recently were able to tour the @nhboatmuseum before they closed for the season. We loved all of the hands-on exhibits and seeing all different kinds of amazing boats. We particularly liked learning about the boat that was powered by horses on a treadmill-like contraption!
