_MG_0981If you haven’t been following us on Facebook, or in case you missed some of our posts lately, here’s a recap of what we’ve been up to.

One of our Students at our Grande Circle Center (Fairfield) received an award for being a responsible, respectful and problem-solving student. We’re so proud of him for being a model of the lessons he’s learning at The Leaven.

You probably know most Leaven kids are struggling in school when they join our programs, but did you know some also have behavior issues? We work hard with our Leaven kids to help them transform their lives, and to have one of them recognized for this change is a huge accomplishment. We are so proud of our Leaven kids!

Our Village Center (Suisun City) headed into the great outdoors for a fun Nature Scavenger hunt this past week. In addition to finding the scavenger hunt items, each student picked up 3 pieces of trash, helping to leave the park cleaner than when they got there.

Activities like this are great because they help teach our Leaven kids multiple important lessons all at once. Not only are they learning about caring for the environment and giving back to the community, but also learning about the joys of nature and teamwork.

These are just two of the fun things going on at our Leaven centers. Be sure to follow us on Facebook if you aren’t already to stay up to date. And, if you want to help our Leaven centers give our students more great experiences and make a big difference, please donate today. You support makes all of this possible and it is how together we are helping kids and communities rise!
