Monthly Events for Children & Youth

DSC01402

We have held monthly events since our founding, all well attended, averaging 25 – 35 young people per event in addition to parents and volunteers.  For the academic year, September 2016 to June 2017, our theme is ‘A Sense of Place’ and is underwritten by a generous grant from the Chesapeake Bay Trust.

Please call Jessica, Children’s Program Coordinator, 302-299-7881, if you are interested in participating — we always appreciate help with brown bag lunches, transportation, and, most importantly, fellowship and informal mentoring:
