Parents of Hanover High School Students

Mark your calendar NOW to talk about teen sexual behaviors, consent, gender stereotypes, and gender-based violence.  

When?  Tuesday, March 21st

Where?  Diane Guarino's Health Classroom -- Room 110

Time 6 – 7pm

Presented by:  WISE and HHS

WISE spends a week with each semester of Health classes at Hanover High, working with students to understand why and how gender-based violence exists, and strategizing ways that each of us can play a role in ending it. We hope that your children then go home and talk to you about what they’re learning and thinking about. During this evening event, parents will get an overview of the concepts and practices that help students build skills in Health class; and leave with an understanding of how to encourage pro-social reflections, and attitudes and behaviors that encourage safe and healthy relationships.

WISE leads the Upper Valley to end gender-based violence. WISE is dedicated to supporting individuals and communities to address the ways that violence impacts us all.

Hire Youth-in-Action for your spring clean up!

Youth-in-Action (YIA) is gearing up for our annual Day-in-Action (formerly Operation Day's Work or ODW). This is an opportunity for community members to hire Hanover High School YIA students to do a few hours of work around your home or business on an afternoon this spring. Here are the details:

Date: Friday, May 5, 2017

Time: 11:00-3:00

Project: Students will be available to work for you on those spring projects you have on your list (painting, yard & garden clean up, home organization, window washing, etc.).

Cost: Each student is paid $10  per hour. All of the funds raised will go to support the work that Youth-in-Action does in our community. If you would like to be an employer this year, please fill out this DIA Employer Form. When you sign up, that means a small group of high school students will work for you for a few hours on that day. This is a terrific community event. We hope you will be part of the fun. Call or email Beth if you have questions. Thank you for your support!


Coming up is Youth-In-Action’s annual Pancake Breakfast at the RW Black Rec and Senior Center Saturday, March 25, 8:30 - 10:30 $5/per person.
