Meet Or Make New Friends At Teen Connection Program

By ERIN CHERKASKY and
ARLENE GUNSBERG

It was great seeing friends that
I hadn't seen in a while. Where did I
see them? At the new Teen
Connection program, sponsored by
the B'nai B'rith Youth Organization
in cooperation with the Jewish
Community Center. The program is
for seventh and eighth graders and
has social and recreational
activities.
On Oct. 17, Teen Connection
had its first party at the main Jewish

L-4

FRIDAY, NOV. 20, 1987

Center. There was a dance,
racquetball, volleyball and
basketball, friendly people and
plenty of refreshments.
I enjoyed meetng new people at
the party and it was really nice to
finally meet my girlfriend Dana's
friends from her class at Hebrew
school.
Meeting new people and
developing friendships is a strong
objective of the Teen Connection
program. Members are given
countless opportunities to meet

other teens and together they
engage in a wide range of activities.

The annual membership fee for
the Teen Connection Program is
$20. The Teen Connection
participant will receive a
membership card and a subscription
to The Shofar, the international
BBYO newspaper, which will
highlight Teen Connection activities
throughout the country. The teens
will also receive a monthly
newsletter that will describe
upcoming activities and events.

Earlier this month there was a
pizza/bowling party. Other
scheduled activities include a day-
long Chanukah celebration at Camp
Tamarack and a trip to a Pistons
game in January. Free shuttle
service is provided for members
living in the Southfield/Oak Park
area. To join, call Ms. Gunsberg,
661-1000, ext. 236.

Erin Cherkasky is a seventh grader at West
Maple Middle School in Birmingham. Arlene
Gunsberg is the coordinator of the Teen
Connection program.
