Friendship Fun Around the Bay

Friends for Youth organized two activities this past week, and they were both marvelous successes!

Almost Eden Community Garden Volunteer Project
Five Friendships got up early Saturday morning to smell the roses. The Almost Eden Community Garden in Palo Alto is a beautiful space full of flowers, vegetables and, unfortunately, weeds. At 9am it was the task of the Friends for Youth crew to banish these pesky plants from the otherwise pristine plot.

Program Coordinator Maribel Zarate organized the event. "Everyone was very tired by the end, but it was so much fun!"

Friends for Youth at ABC7 Live
At the ABC studios on the corner of Embarcadero and Green streets in San Francisco, Friends for Youth Friendships and staff gathered to be part of the on-screen "voice box" for the ABC7 Live television show.

The show, hosted by Brian Copeland, engages people in live conversations about everything from pop-culture to politics. Members of Friends for Youth sat in the audience section of the set where they clapped and cheered every time the show returned from commercials. It was a new experience for everybody.
