What an amazing month October has been! We enjoyed spaghetti dinner and great parenting tips at the Start the Conversation workshop. If you couldn’t make it, Good to Know Colorado is one of many sites offering tips on talking to your children about making healthy choices. The Lunch Groups are winding down in Ridgway and will start up in Ouray after the New Year. We are encouraged by the enthusiastic launch of Sources of Strength in both Ridgway and Ouray secondary schools, facilitated by Alex Durham, our teen center site leader, who is also presenting Positive Action in Ouray School. Basketball for 3rd and 4th graders is up and running. If you have any questions about our programs, please call 970 626-4279 or check us out online at voyageryouthprogram.org.At the Voyager after school enrichment program, we have been having a blast exploring the world around us this month.
