Teen Advisory Board is now collecting arts & crafts supplies for Two Doors Community Center in Greece

Tonight members of the Teen Advisory Board helped to decorate a collection box for our Fall Service Project:  collecting arts and crafts supplies for the Two Doors Community Center in Greece.  Two Doors After-School program is designed for those who are presently exhibiting a reading or math achievement below grade level and for those that are in need of academic, social or emotional support.
The Program Director trains and supervises volunteers to work at a 1:1 or 1:2 volunteer to student ratio.  Students are supported in their homework for one hour each day, and participate in Circle Time where values like responsibility, respect, commitment, and making positive life choices are discussed.
 
Open activities include supervised work in our computer lab, crafts, games and physical fitness.
Two Doors helps to builds self esteem & academic confidence by:
  • helping students complete homework
  • giving students the opportunity to make more friends
  • help students have less anxiety about school
  • help students have a sense of belonging
  • help students have a positive attitude toward academics
Help us fill the "wish list" of Two Doors for new arts and crafts supplies to be used in the after school program.  The collection box will be in the lobby of the Greece Public Library, near the community flyer bookshelf.  Items like crayons, markers, scissors, glue sticks, pencils, etc. are suggested.  Contact either ctalbot@libraryweb.org or sterrito@libraryweb.org with any questions or concerns.  We will be collecting through Thursday, October 3rd.  Thank you for your support!
