High School Team Launches New Student Activity Groups

Mar 6, 2019

Our Behavioral Health team kicked off 2019 with a whole new lineup of fun activity groups for high school students! Pictured above is Hella Hungry, a drop-in cooking class hosted by the Neighborhood Center’s Kysha Shaffer, in which Washington High School students put their own spin on recipes like pizza, muffins and more. Cooking and baking give youth lots of opportunities to be creative, work in teams, and learn kitchen skills (not to mention getting to chow down when they’re done)! Hella Hungry will take place every Friday until the end of the semester.

Other groups at Wash include the Women’s Empowerment Group, which meets weekly and will take a field trip to UCSF for International Women’s Day on March 14, and the twice-monthly Gardening Club, which works with our Garden Program Manager Abdoulie Jallow on garden projects that emphasize environmental stewardship. And over at Wallenberg High School, our Academic Tutoring Group has been helping more than 20 students each week with homework, study skills, and more.

Our team is really excited to have these groups up and running, and our youth have been letting their creativity shine. We can’t wait to see what the rest of the semester brings!
