WHEN IS PROGRAM?
During the school year, program takes place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:30-4:45 for middle schoolers and 6:30-8:30 for high schoolers.
WHERE IS PROGRAM?
Program for middle school happens at the Mounds View Community Center. Program for high school happens at the Quincy House.
WHAT IS PROGRAM?
Quincy House serves teens enrolled in 6th - 12th grade with after school and summer programs. We believe teens are in need of guidance and empowerment in the social, emotional, physical, spiritual and intellectual realms. In order to provide this holistic support to each teen, Quincy House offers Program in two parts: Group Nights and Real Talk Nights.
Group night is a time to play games, meet together as a Quincy family and enjoy a family style dinner. We have a huge backyard with a sport court that includes basketball and volleyball playing surfaces. Teens enjoy yard games, fuse ball, card games and board games as well. Next, our whole Quincy family meets upstairs for a teaching time from our Program Director. We watch videos and cover topics to empower our teens to live with more purpose and take ownership of their well being.
Finally we share meals which are donated to Quincy House by members of our community and local restaurants. This is a time for our students to have conversation and reflect on their night as we sit around the table.
Real Talk Night
Real Talk night is a time for our teens to play games, reflect on their weeks and have dinner. The structure of these nights are the same as that of Group nights, except instead of meeting as a full group, we break into smaller support groups to facilitate restorative circles.
During Real Talk, teens reflect on their week and share their emotions in a trusted group. Our teens learn to grow from one another and learn to build confidence, self-esteem, coping skills and trust!
WHAT ELSE GOES ON AT PROGRAM?
Every second Tuesday of the month, Quincy House brings in a speaker to Group night to share their testimony and to give a message on the current teaching series.
The last Thursday of each month, Quincy hosts Mic Night, a time for our teens to share their gifts and accomplishments with each other. We set up a stage in our garage, give our teens a mic, and sit back and watch the show!
