Woodbridge Youth Services News – November 2021

Call 203-389-3429 or email npfund@woodbridgect.org for information or to sign up for programs.

Sarah Pearson – New Youth Program Coordinator

Youth Services welcomes Sarah Pearson to the staff to plan programming for youth and families.  Sarah’s education includes a master’s degree in Social Work, and a bachelor’s degree in Sociology.  She may be a familiar face to some through her recent work as a teacher assistant at Beecher Road School.  Please join us in welcoming her and call to offer comments or ideas for youth and families.

Job Bank

Raking season is upon us.  Woodbridge teens who want paid, outdoor work should contact Youth Services to schedule an interview.  The Job Bank is a referral service for residents who offer odd jobs to members.  Residents may call to request student workers.  Schedule helpers now for snow shoveling later.

Toys 4 Kids

This program supports Woodbridge and Bethany families and surrounding towns to provide holiday toys to those in need through TEAM, Inc.  Due to COVID restrictions, online giving is encouraged.  Financial support is desperately needed to purchase toys for children and gift cards for those 8 – 12.  To donate, please visit TEAM’s website at https://teaminc.org/toys-4-kids-2021/.  Collection boxes for new, boxed toys for ages 0 – 8 will be available in the town library and in Youth Services until November 30.  To apply for toys, see TEAM’s website for online application and requirements to be posted on 11/16/21.

Youth Advisory Board

Youth Services is looking for a few Woodbridge parents to join our board.  We meet every other month during the school year at 3:45 pm on the third Thursday to work with community members to advise Youth Services and bring ideas for programming.  Contact Nancy Pfund at 203-389-3429 for information.

BOWDAAC-Mention Prevention

Bethany-Orange-Woodbridge Drug/Alcohol Action Committee, our local prevention group, is seeking a few new members to meet monthly to plan programs which help to prevent substance abuse within our community.  If you are interested, please contact us for more information.

Home Alone

Youth Services Director Nancy Pfund recently presented a Home Alone Class to students ages 9-11.  Special thanks to Officer Lynch for his assistance.  Topics included house rules, answering the door and phone, nutritious snacks, emergencies, calling 911, and internet safety.  Participants received an information pack to share and discuss with parents.
