Holiday Party

December 13, 2012

On Thursday, December 13, 2012 Aurora Youth Options Mentor program held its December monthly activity: a Holiday Party Potluck. The event was for mentors, mentees, and their families. Over 55 people attended the event, making it one of the biggest events of the year! An Aurora Mental Health Center therapist, who uses drumming to bring people together, led a drumming activity with the theme of: understanding diversity, taking action, and overcoming challenges.
Mentors were able to help their mentees learn a valuable life-skill: appreciating diversity and overcoming challenges. Everyone enjoyed the food, games, and spending time together conversing and building relationships. All attendees had a great and fun time! Truly, it was a night to be remembered and a great activity to end the year with family, friends, and loved-ones.
