The Rye Youth Council -
                      Fostering Healthy Development in our Youth
 

A Wonderful Community Service Opportunity!

 

Strengthening Connections:

The Osborn Biographies Project

    

The Rye Youth Council is excited to partner with The Osborn for a unique intergenerational program that brings together three generations -- senior citizens, high school age students and their parents -- to capture the life story of Osborn residents. Through informal interviews, interested youth and their parents will have the opportunity to meet with an Osborn resident, learn about his or her life and then create a brief written biography that will be shared at the Osborn and beyond. It is our hope that this collaborative program will serve as a catalyst to help preserve historical and cultural traditions, enhance community spirit and strengthen partnerships among community organizations and individuals.

 

Program Day of Service:       Saturday, March 7th, 11:00am to 12:30pm

Location:                                The Osborn, 101 Theall Road, Rye - Main Entrance

Space is Limited:                   Max. 20 high school students and their parent(s)

ABOUT THE RYE YOUTH COUNCIL

The Rye Youth Council is an independent nonprofit organization, built on the belief that our children’s social and emotional well-being is essential to their academic and lifelong success.

Our youth advocates offer programs that foster positive behavior, encourage social-emotional growth, and challenge students to see the world beyond themselves.

We work closely with the schools, parents and community to create positive goals and to provide a safe, caring environment for all our young people.
