Thoughts from the Youth
February 17, 2021

Here at Growing Young Movers, we’ve been working hard to offer safe and fun programming for youth in the community, but unfortunately COVID-19 has made that more difficult than normal.

We were elated to re-open our doors after the recent break to come together again for games, fun, and healthy snacks! Last week we checked in with a few of the kids attending a G.Y.M. after-school care program and got their thoughts about G.Y.M.

Question: What did you miss about G.Y.M. when it was closed because of COVID-19?


“I missed the mentors, having fun, the games, and having lots of space to play!” - Serenity

“I missed playing the games like bowling. I liked getting away from school and having fun.” -Thomas
