Aubrey Peterson, an East Hampton High School student assistance counselor, will train high school students 15 and older to “recognize when someone is thinking about suicide” and discuss how to connect with those in distress to offer support in a program on Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the East Hampton Library. Students wishing to participate must get a permission slip from their teachers and can visit Mr. Peterson’s office at the high school to reserve a seat on the bus from the school to the library on Tuesday morning.
Also for high school students at the library this week, there will be an opportunity to earn community service credits by writing letters from Santa to kids. Kits can be reserved in the calendar section of the library’s website and picked up tomorrow between 3 and 5 p.m. The letters will eventually be displayed in the children’s room.
Another community service opportunity comes on Saturday for kids who volunteer in the young-adult booth at the Santa’s Village fair in Herrick Park. Interested students are asked to email [email protected] or [email protected].
High school students can join an online Minecraft Bedwars session next Thursday from 5 to 6:30 p.m. After signing up on the library’s website, participants will get a Zoom link and details on how to join in the fun.
At the Amagansett Library, high school students can use art as a means of relaxation in a workshop on Friday, Dec. 10. Offered in collaboration with Project Hope, the workshop will run from 3:45 to 5 p.m. Faith Evans can be reached with questions or to register at [email protected].
