Another great week with the WRAP youth this week! Jen led an awesome session on vitamins and we played a friendly game of volleyball. We presented WalMart gift cards to seven of the youth for their recent achievement on the Honor Roll in the Worcester Public Schools. We began soccer practice for the U18 boys to participate in the EPIC soccer tournament at Elm Park School.

The WRAP youth group currently has around 18 members aged 12-20 who meet on Saturday afternoons to discuss issues of health, leadership, goal-setting and more. 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
