On Friday, December 13th, the PYD community celebrated the holidays with nonstop dancing, delicious food, and great company! We would like to thank the Dunne family for hosting all of us at the Elks Lodge in Melrose.
For the month of December, The Shops at Prudential Center and Prudential Tower are once again shining bright with the help of local community organizations.
We are excited to announce that on December 24th, 2013, the top of the Prudential Tower will beam blue in support of Partners for Youth with Disabilities. PYD has been selected to be part of the annual 31 Nights of Light program, and Executive Director Regina Snowden will flip the switch on December 24th to shine a light on disability inclusion throughout Boston!
Dianne Lescinskas, Project B.I.N.D. Director at Boys and Girls Club of Dorchester, José Rosado, Director of Programs at Liberty Mutual Foundation, and Genelle Thomas, National Center Director at PYD.
Liberty Mutual Foundation’s commitment to the inclusion of people with disabilities led to an important series of trainings hosted on October 18th and November 18th, when more than 40 of their grantees participated in inclusion training facilitated by PYD’s National Center. Grantees represented a variety of social service organizations and schools throughout Boston and the surrounding areas, including KIPP Massachusetts, Catholic Charities Teen Center at St. Peter’s, Girl Scouts of Eastern Mass, and MathPOWER.
As the year 2013 comes to a close, we’ve got all the right resources to help you feel prepared for the holidays and ready to face the new year!
For the holidays, we have tips on things to do, places to shop for gifts, and ways to save money. For the upcoming new year, we offer resources for college and career readiness so that you can start off on the right foot! Happy Holidays!
