Fall Programs

Fall is here and we are up and running with our back to school programs. 

Positive Youth Development:

WOW- Women on the Way quickly filled.  Over 30 girls in grades 9-12 registered and will be meeting weekly to explore new activities, make new friends and have some fun.

GO! begins on Friday October 12th.  The boys, in 6th and 7th grade will be out and about exploring our parks and trails.  When the weather lets us down, we will head to Holcomb Farm or the Senior Center for some ping pong and other inside games.

YAC: The Youth Action Council held a very successful retreat in September.  Camp Jewel was a great location for the group to come together as a team.  Our next meeting is on October 17th when we will begin planning the first 6th grade dance of the year.

Free Support Groups:

Around Again, a group for grandparents raising their grandchildren continues to meet on Thursdays at 12:00 noon.  New members are always welcome and evening meetings are easily scheduled to accommodate those grandparents still working during the afternoons.

Our Women's Divorce Support Group is meeting on Thursdays at 6:30 here at the YSB.  Enrollment is open, so please consider joining us to make some community connections with others also going through this difficult process.

Our Substance Abuse Support Group for Adolescents will begin meeting at 7:00 PM on Monday evenings.  This group is open to any teens able to attend who feel substance use is having a negative impact on their lives.

The Youth Service Bureau is working in close collaboration with the Granby Public School system.  One great example is the Internet safety series of presentations held October 4th and 5th.  Another example are the various middle school groups that are being co facilitated by YSB and GMMS staff.

Enjoy the colors of fall,
