The Hampden Family Center is seeking volunteers to share their passion and talents with the young people of Hampden. The Hampden Family Center offers a 6-week summer enrichment program for community youth from June 27 - August 2, 2016. Our youth are in Grades 1 through 5, and our goal is to allow them to explore various interests, learn new skills, and form positive relationships with peers and adults. Participation in our summer program is directly related to a decrease in engagement in risk behavior, a benefit for all young people and the Hampden community!
