- Licemonday at CSYGC

We have bought lots of lice shampoo and lice combs, because it is a project we will continue every Monday. It is an impossible job to eliminate all the lice, because the boys are also getting it from their school and other places, but we will reduce the problem by having this lice Monday. The boys have welcomed our Lice Monday, and like to help themselves.

- Focuschild at CSYGC

The leader at CSYGC will like each student to have a focus child, which means that you will have extra focus on the child you choose, to help them in whatever way they need. For example, it could be studying English or helping them with chores.

· OL day at CSYGC

We have in cooperation with the students from Rise Above planned a Saturday filled with activities for the boys. We will start in the mornings with some team activities followed by individual team activities. It will be made as a competition where you gain points at every activity by how well you do the activity. We will end the day with a medal ceremony for every boy and a trophy for the winning team. We have planned these different activities so that the boys will develop most possible motoric and cognitive skills.

· Growth project at Pier4

We have gotten this idea to start a project in cooperation with Gavan from All Stars and the families, where we will provide families with growth boxes. The idea is, that each family will get a box with vegetables for growing, that they have to take care of themselves. These vegetables they can use for selling or for themselves. When we arrive at Pier 4, we will see and talk with the children about the development happening in these boxes, so that they will be a part of the project as well. We are now trying to find materials together with finding out which vegetables is suitable. We will start as an attempt with four families, and on the long term, we hope that it has been such a success that each family at Pier 4 can get a growing box for themselves. This is because of different varieties, such as climate, local circumstances and use of space.
