NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- This weekend at the Mascaro Clubhouse, New Rochelle Boys and Girls Club held their Second Annual Passport to Manhood Sleepover.
Passport members ages 11 to 14 spent one night and two days at the club participating in many different activities. Passport to Manhood is a program for boys ages eight to 17 and is a 14 session program that concentrates on specific aspects of manhood through highly interactive activities.
Passport to Manhood addressed critical issues that young men face, such as ethics, decision making, relationships, self esteem and teamwork. They started the sleepover Friday night with a visit from Detective Terrence Fudge of the New Rochelle Police Department to discuss making smart decisions and street awareness.
They then transitioned into a game of indoor laser tag in the gym. The next morning they held a Healthy Habits lesson with chef KeeKee who taught members how to make Breakfast Burritos. The next part of the sleepover weekend was all about teamwork and brought them to Five Wits at the Palisades Mall. The members had to work together to solve riddles and puzzles to complete the mission.
They ended the weekend with a fun trip to Playland to celebrate a year in Passport to Manhood.
