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!

Gift of Lights at NH Motor Speedway

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. ? ✨ ?

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.

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!
