Positive Youth Development

Positive Youth Development is one of the four areas of focus for Youth & Family Services. Programs and offerings that fall under this banner are designed to provide positive growth experiences to youth in Portland and offer opportunities to engage in positive peer groups, learn a sense of self and self-esteem, meet other caring and positive adult role models, and increase involvement in the school and the community.

We're working on expanding our offerings in this area. Drop us a line and let us know what you'd like to see!

Wednesday Board Games

Middle School Board Game Club will have our last meeting of this school year on May 18, 2022. It will be held monthly in the Library Media Center in the Middle School from 2:30 - 5:00 pm. Initially for 7th and 8th grader, we will be expanding over the summer to include High School and Brownstone students!

We'll be bringing a selection of games from classics like Chess, Checkers, and Scrabble, to new staples like Pandemic, Ticket to Ride, Settlers of Catan, and many more! Let us know what you want to see or bring in your favorite from home! We'll be providing a light snack as well.

This is a drop-in program, but we recommend signing up in advance so we know what turnout looks like. Students will also need a permission slip, which can be found here and in the Middle School Office. Please note, that students and family are responsible for rides home.

Upcoming dates: 5/18
