Spotlight Friendships

Lu and Devin have enjoyed a variety of activities during their year together. They’ve had a terrific time getting to know each other through the many fun activities in which they’ve participated. They attended Friends for Youth sponsored activities such as the Automotive Shop Tour. They also used free tickets to go see the circus. Lu and Devin found the Life Skill Workshops to be helpful and attended two of them: Know Your Rights on police encounters and the Anti-bullying workshop. Being that they both live near the coast, they spent much of their time out in the salty sea air hiking or exploring the local piers. They have built a wonderful and unique Friendship that neither of them is ready to part with. They will continue being friends and hanging out regularly!

Anna and Ashley were matched last December. Both agree that being a Senior and a Junior Friend was a different experience than what they expected because it was much better than what they expected! Anna and Ashley really like hanging out and spending time together. They have shared many laughs together and will continue to in the future. Anna and Ashley attended many Friends for Youth activities including the Tile Making activity, which was their first activity together and occurred only a few weeks after they were matched. They also attended the Jump Sky High activity and liked it so much that they later attended one of the center’s classes on their own. Anna and Ashley also received free tickets to different performances and attractions, including Stars on Ice and Alcatraz. Anna mentioned at their One Year Friendship Anniversary meeting, “My favorite activity was… there were a lot of good activities so it’s really hard to choose,” and Ashley completely agreed!
