We had another great Saturday youth group with a cool school nutrition jeopardy game led by Mark and soccer games led by Valerie and Paul. The red and purple teams beat the green and blue teams and then the volunteers beat the youth in a healthy adult-teen rivalry :)
We also started an exchange with UMass medical students from the Global Health Program. We hope to continue and expand this exchange in the weeks to come. Thanks to everyone who made this day happen!

Each youth helps the refugee community through a variety of ways, translation services, homework help, volunteering at events and more. The youth group also explores different activities such as yoga, wall-climbing, boxing, dance, bowling, and baseball
