Starksboro Mentoring Pizza and Games Night – November 9, 2016

Pizza Night for Youth Mentoring - Starksboro Mentoring ProgramOn November 9, nearly 70 mentors, mentees and mentee family members from the Starksboro Mentoring Program joined together at the Robinson School cafeteria to eat pizza and play games together. There were dozens of games to choose from spread through 5 offices and classrooms in the school. A peek into any given room revealed mentees and mentors locked in concentration over chess and battleship matches, parents receiving gameplay tips from their children, and smiles on every face. “I had so much fun playing Checkers with my mentor and my family!” said one mentee, who was surrounded by mom, dad, mentor and siblings. This evening was the first of its kind, and its success surely points to more in the program’s future.
