Youth Services – September 2021

Teens wanted:  Youth Services plans to create a student group to help develop better middle school afternoon and evening programs.  Call 203-389-3449 or email youthone@woodbridgect.org to attend meetings and use your creativity to design new events and activities with your interests in mind.

Prevention Programs:  In an effort to prevent our youth from obtaining alcohol, Youth Services, in conjunction with the Bethany-Orange-Woodbridge Drug/Alcohol Action Committee, (BOWDAAC) will be involved in a local campaign to share information and training opportunities with local business owners who sell or serve alcohol.  BOWDAAC promotes healthy lifestyles and applies for an annual Local Prevention Council Grant to support prevention programs in the tri-town area.  Interested residents may call for more information.

Job Bank:  Now accepting new students!  Weeding and yardwork jobs are currently available.  To join the Woodbridge Job Bank and build communication skills, gain experience, and earn some cash, call for an interview 203-389-3429.  Town residents: may call the Job Bank to hire Woodbridge teens matched to fit job requirements.

Babysitting

Red Cross Babysitting instructor Anna Mauhs shared valuable information with the eleven students who attended the recent Babysitter Training hosted by Youth Services.  Students learned about leadership, feeding, diapering, and basic first aid.  Teens are always excited to learn how to prevent and respond when a child or adult is choking.  The Red Cross Babysitting handbook offers questionnaires for the parents to complete and information on how to build a babysitting business.  Call 203-389-3464 to be notified of the next class.  Various Red Cross trained students are enrolled in the Woodbridge Job Bank and will be available to babysit.

Call Youth Services for information:  203-389-3429.  Email npfund@woodbridgect.org.
