MOVE & WISE MEET BOYS & GIRLS
Goodwin’s MOVE and WISE students are participating in an on-going mentoring program with students at the Connecticut River Academy (CTRA). Mentors meet with their high school mentees twice a month for a one-on-one and for a group community service sessions. This month’s group activity was volunteering at the Asylum Hill Boys and Girls Club. The Goodwin and CTRA students spread holiday cheer by bonding with the children and decorating holiday cookies. Ashley Charles, a WISE mentor, enjoyed her involvement. “It was great seeing the kids so happy. It was a fun bonding activity to spend time with not only my mentee, but with the children as well.” The children at the Boys and Girls Club were able get to know and learn from the students — and get a sugar rush at the same time! Goodwin and CTRA look forward to partnering with the Boys and Girls Club again.
