Here we are in the month of April!! Spring has sprung! Time flies here at the Youth Center. We are so busy with all of our after-school programs. As a reminder, all participants must be a Milford resident and/or attend Milford Schools, to fill out a registration form to be a member (8-18 yr olds) and participate in programming.
The gym, game room and lounge are open for free use every day and we have at least three structured programs daily for April. We will continue to run homework room, nutrition, career and college advising (where we offer extended guidance counseling for teens who want help with their FAFSA, college application, resumes, and job applications), crafts, JAG (the Juvenile Advocacy Group), Sewing, and Pokémon club. In addition to our core programming we will also be adding a few new programs for the month of April. New programs include; gardening (which Blackstone Valley Technical High School has agreed to work with us to build garden boxes in the back of the Youth Center), Taste Exploration (a chance for youth to try new foods), and a walking club where youth can enjoy guided strolls down the bike path. For full calendar and times, click here. We are always open to new ideas and search for volunteers who would like to run a program or help monitor. Contact Christine Daddario, firstname.lastname@example.org, 508-473-1756 if you would like to volunteer.
As a reminder, all participants must be a Milford resident and/or attend Milford Schools, to fill out a registration form to become a member. Once this form is returned to the Center, the member will be provided with a key tag and ID number. This will be how the Youth Center staff will track attendance. Therefore, all members are required to bring in their key tag in order to enter the facility. If key tag is lost, the Center will charge $1.00 for replacement. You can find out all up-to-date info at our website.
Thank you Stacy Middle School and Woodland Elementary for allowing us to come in to do outreach!
