We are excited to kick off Kids Club this month! Youth, families, and staff are back on Thursday evenings for this favorite program, after a pandemic pause, with an updated format. The focus of Kids Club this year is to transition youth from being served to serving. Community service and giving back are at the forefront of each sessions theme. In addition, Kids Club is the first volunteer opportunity for many of Banyan’s older youth.

Along with gym and snack time, Banyan youth will live out the value of service by participating in projects that support the local community. This month youth made tie blankets for an organization serving those who are experiencing homelessness. Projects and community partners will change with each session. If the first session is an indicator, youth missed Kids Club and are enjoying the community connection!
