Snow Art Challenge for Woodbridge and Bethany Families

Bethany and Woodbridge families who find themselves looking for outdoor fun this winter can express their talents by entering in the Youth Services Snow Art Competition.  Email a photo as an attachment of you and your family with your creation to youthone@woodbridgect.org.  Prizes will be awarded for skill and creativity.  Check the Town of Woodbridge website at https://www.woodbridgect.org/160/Youth-Services or see our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/Woodbridge-Youth-Services-Woodbridge-CT- for updates and prizewinners.  Due date for photos is March 1, 2022.  Sponsored by Woodbridge Youth Services and the Town of Bethany.

Job Bank

It’s snow season.  Residents may call to request teens to shovel or do odd jobs.  Please plan for snow shoveling as the number of teens is limited.  Teens who want paid work should contact Youth Services to schedule an interview.  The Job Bank is a referral service for residents who offer odd jobs to resident teens ages 13 – 18.

Yale Teen Vaping Cessation Program

Call for information.  Financial incentive available to help high school students end the vaping habit.

Amity Spartans Assist with Holiday Baskets

Several students under the guidance of Amity High School paraprofessional Akeem Elliott-Lazarus assisted with the distribution of the holiday baskets to Woodbridge families in December.  Their energy and enthusiasm were inspiring, and their generosity was much appreciated.

Delivery to New Reach Homeless Shelter

Amity Middle and High School students and some residents contributed 170 kits and gift cards for the homeless.  Sarah Pearson and Nancy Pfund of Woodbridge Youth Services delivered kits, gift cards, and many donated toys to the New Reach Shelter in New Haven for homeless families to bring cheer to those in need.  Students who made kits were awarded community service hours for their efforts.

Paint Party a Success

Youth Services held a paint party in December as an after-school activity at Amity Middle School-Bethany Campus.  Students created beautiful winter scenes on canvas under the patient instruction of Samantha Woodruff.  Hot chocolate, snacks, and holiday music created a warm and serene atmosphere for the students.  Watch for the next paint party in the school’s newsletter and on the Youth Services Facebook page and the Town of Woodbridge website.
