Nourishing Minds and Bodies

We are delighted to ring in a new school year with lots of exciting in-person activities. 

Welcome Back, M.O.B.B.Y.!

Last week, we kicked off our M.O.B.B.Y program with photography and entrepreneurial lessons from local photographers, Wayne Dixon Photography
and Peter Guman Photography! They covered everything from the importance of finding the right angle to tell a story, and the importance of photography throughout history. 

M.O.B.B.Y is a new program was focused on young black and brown male students. Bi-weekly meetings provide educational, recreational, cultural and civic experiences for these youth. Monthly trips are planned to: expose young men to the arts; introduce them to work experiences in fields such as the culinary arts, law, and engineering; introduce them to local law enforcement; establish financial literacy; visit local historically black colleges: meet with local lawmakers; and educate, discuss, and exchange ideas in public events.

If you’re interested in speaking with our students, please contact us! 

West Chester's Newest Little Free Library

Did you know that two out of three children living in poverty have no books to call their own? Studies have shown, the more access to books (especially at home), the greater chance of a child learning to read and loving books. 📚

We are so excited to have a new Little Free Library right on Miner St. We’d like to thank the West Chester Green Team for funding our library, and The Greater West Chester Sunrise Rotary Club for putting it together! Stop by Miner St. to fall in love with your next read.
