Doc Wayne Youth Give Back this Thanksgiving

4 Dec

Youth participating in Doc Wayne’s Global Life Empowerment (GLE) program (http://docwayne.org/what-we-do/GLE), funded by the MA Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, made a positive difference in their community this Thanksgiving.

Cards, crafts, and baked goods were delivered to Marian Manor Nursing Home, Longwood Public Safety, and the Boston Police Department’s C-6 District.  

Youth at South Boston’s Joseph M. Tierney Learning Center (TLC) planned and organized the project with guidance from Jose Sotz (TLC – Program & Technology Coordinator) and Tyler Germond (Doc Wayne Intern & Endicott College Student).

Teens from Calvary Chapel Chelmsford donated homemade baked goods to assist Doc Wayne youth in their efforts.

The GLE program seeks to:

  • Empower youth by giving them a voice
  • Provide additional out of the classroom writing and alternative self-expression opportunities
  • Teach self-regulation and social skills
  • Help youth learn to advocate for themselves, their needs, and desires in appropriate ways.
  • Youth work cooperatively, with team members and their coach, to share their responses to suggested changes, lessons learned, and group leadership activities experienced.
