Youth Programs & Activities
*Job Bank: Job Bank is now taking applications from qualified 13-18-year-olds who want employment babysitting, pet sitting or performing other household chores. Call Monday through Friday between 3 and 5 pm for an application.
*Alateen meetings are Tuesdays from 7 to 8 pm.
This program is for youth affected by somebody elseâs alcoholism. At meetings members share their personal experiences, and learn to find personal happiness, whether or not the alcoholic in their lives is still drinking.
*Circle of Parents: This mutual self-help support program for parents is based on a simple and time tested model: through peer-to-peer leadership and support at weekly meetings, people in a parenting capacity can, over time, gain self-esteem, overcome isolation and improve their parenting skills by exchanging support and positive parenting suggestions.
The group meets on the first and third Monday of each month at 7 pm. Call Jessi at NYFS for additional information or to sign up.
All programs take place at NYFS, 17 Church Hill Road, unless otherwise noted. For more information or to register call 203-270-4335.
