YouthQuest Highlights: March 2023 

Playing Doh 

Students at Eisenhower Elementary participated in the Play Dough Club during March. In the club, students learned how to make their own play dough. Then, they mixed up different colors and made a new creation each week. The club was a great way for students to express their creativity and learn new skills. 

Stop, Regulate & Listen 

To support youth development, staff at Pierce Elementary created a club called Character Building. During the club, learning guides demonstrated lessons and opportunities for students to help them learn the importance of helping other children learn and practice behaviors. These behaviors students can use in their everyday lives to help regulate hard emotions.  

I’m Cocoa for Cookies 

YouthQuest sites Doyle Ryder and Potter Elementary enjoyed a Cookies and Cocoa Night that helped promote literacy. During the event teachers from the school came in and read to the students while they enjoyed cookies and hot cocoa. At the end of the event, each student was able to pick out five books to take home with them and read with their family.  

Chip Chop 

Students at multiple sites participated in the Chop it Like It’s Hot Club in partnership with Flint Fresh. In the club, students were able to learn how to cook a meal with ingredients provided by Flint Fresh, then they were able to take a meal box home to cook with their families. The club helps expose students to new meals and promotes eating fresh fruits and vegetables.  

YouthQuest is made possible through the generous support of the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation and 21st Century Community Learning Centers.
