DHG Spring/Summer Programs Green Playdate A program offered by DHG to children ages 7-11. Participants learn about the current state of our environment and what they can do to help improve it. They also have the opportunity to take action by picking up the litter at playgrounds in their neighborhood. After their hard work, participants are rewarded with free playtime and fun structured activities in a beautiful clean space. These young environmentalists are making a difference while inspiring others to do the same.

Sister Circle Sister Circle program. It is a youth-led empowerment program serving teen and college age young women in underserved communities in the MetroWest area. It was created to provide a space for our adolescents to discuss relevant issues affecting them including culture and identity, and relationships. The group meets biweekly for two hours during the academic school year as well as an annual conference. The goal of this program is to empower girls to discover and be proud of who they are. Help them lean into learning more about the culture & communities they are a part of and come from. By encouraging them to explore their identity and emotions, we aim to influence the next generation of leaders, and problem solvers.
