ABCs at Friends Youth Mentoring (August 2018)

Art ~ Backpacks & Bikes ~ Culture

Thanks to a grant from the Rite Aid Foundation KidCents, the Friends Youth Mentoring Program hosted two professional NH teaching artists for our mentors and mentees. The masterpieces – a Mosaic and a Tapestry - now hang proudly on the walls at the Friends Program office for all to enjoy! The children designed the pieces and added a cultural component which we are honored to experience and witness as the positive impact was profound.

We are deeply grateful for our village who donated backpacks and the school supplies to stuff them, along with goodies, so the children in our mentoring program can start this new school year off right. And check out this story about the donated bikes we received.  

Our mentoring program is geared toward helping children develop characteristics and capabilities that lead to positive life choices and personal growth. Please consider becoming a mentor and call us at 603-228-0108 to register to attend one of our upcoming orientations.
