Programs for Older Students and Teens:
“Get Real”– The Funhouse is launching another fantastic program with Beth Jenson, LMHC- This time for 7th-8th graders! Get Real is a leadership group about REAL stuff: real relationships, human weirdness, social issues, sexuality, school and life. It is designed for (and by) smart, passionate teens that care about being REAL.
Tuesdays from 5:30-7:00 PM starting September 27.
7th-8th grades only.
Junior Staff volunteering:
This program, for 6th graders and older, is a perfect first step in gaining job skills. We will set up a job interview and provide basic job training. This is a great resume and volunteer experience builder for students. Pick up an application at the Funhouse front office!
Student Advisory Board:
The Funhouse is looking for interested young adults who want to participate in our Student Advisory Board. This board is an opportunity for our high school students to be heard in the community. We will be deciding together what projects they want to work on and how the Funhouse can best serve them and their peers. We will be collaborating with community members to do projects such as art installations, senior mentoring, or host a documentary movie series. We’ll explore the idea of offering new teen classes and skill mentoring opportunities. All island high school students and homeschoolers are welcome!
In addition to the Afterschool program, Teen programs, and Education programs, Funhouse Commons has a thriving Mentor program where you can become a mentor for an island youth, apply for a mentor for your child, or be matched with a Skills Mentor for yourself!
