This summer flew by and we had an amazing summer working with our Discover LI Youth.

I’ve spent the last couple of days reflecting on the amazing work that a handful of families and their awesome children accomplished over the summer with our pilot program, “Discover Long Island with Momee Friends”.  Earlier in the year, Anne and I met with our friend, Geriann, to discuss the possibility of working with the “tweens” in our community.  What drives them? What interests them?  What positive energy can we draw upon to bring them together in fun and meaningful ways?

Discover Long Island with Momee Friends Youth

Here at Momee Friends, we are so grateful to everyone who has become a part of our growing network. We love discovering all the wonderful things about Long Island, and we especially love connecting you and your family to all that the Island has to offer. One of the greatest compliments we have received has also become a call to action for us – do you have anything for my 10 year old? 

With that in mind, we are so excited to present “Discover Long Island with Momee Friends Youth!”

Discover Long Island with momee friends youth

 Momee Friends Youth will bring kids (ages 8-12) together in a safe and judgment-free environment where they can express themselves creatively and develop socially. They will take part in weekly team-building activities that will promote RESPECT, ACCEPTANCE, COOPERATION, and COLLABORATION.  They will have the opportunity to participate in service projects that will show them how rewarding it is to give back to the community, and they will also be empowered by their own purchasing power by writing reviews of local businesses which we will visit as a group.  We want our kids to take pride in who they are and certainly where they come from.  We invite any businesses or organizations to join us as Community Mentors by participating or sponsoring the program, giving you an opportunity to have a direct and positive impact on the lives of our youth.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day

“I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal…”
