A Message from the PYO President…


My name is Jessie Barrett and I am the president of the Prudence Youth Organization. I have been part of the PYO for about five years now and it has been so much fun, it has been a great experience and has taught me responsibility as well. It has helped me grow as a person and it has taught me how to work with others and how to be a positive role model to the younger members. Kids ages 10-17 are able to participate in the PYO, we volunteer serving food in the snack shack and learn to make change, it’s a great learning experience for future jobs. The snack shack is open for game nights, movie nights and bingo night where we sell candy, chips, soda and ice cream. We also do other events such as the PYO craft fair when venders around the island rent tables and are able to sell their goodies. which also allows us to raise money for our annual trip at the end of the year. Since kids volunteer for free, the money raised is used for either a winter or summer trip. In the past we have gone kayaking, Water Wiz and skiing at Cranmore Mountain in New Hampshire. We all agree on a trip together at the PYO meetings, we discuss other ideas that we might have to improve the PYO. This year we hope to add some new events such as a dance party or karaoke night. Last summer we started doing kids bingo with prizes every other game night, being a part of the PYO isn’t just an amazing unforgettable experience, the bonds you make in such a small community feels like family. If you have any questions or want to join the PYO simply come to the PIA and talk to Meg Bearse or myself Jessie Barrett.

All About the PYO…

The PYO is a great way for kids and teens on the island to give back to the Island community, socialize with old friends, make new friends and work together to raise funds for trips and new activities. The PYO sponsors Tuesday night Game Night, Wednesday night Movie night, holds an annual craft fair and sells food in the snack shack to raise money. We are always looking for new PYO members and invite all kids to join by stopping by one of our meetings held at the PIA on Wedsdays at 6:30 PM starting July 10th. Because our PYO members technically age out when they turn 18, we are always in need of new members. Not only does becoming a member look fantastic on a college application or resume, but you get to come with us on some awesome trips!

Come join us and plan some events for this season. Chaperones are needed. They don’t have to do anything but be on the property. Bring a book or a laptop and use the wireless internet. We fund our events by running the Make-Your-Own Sundaes on Tuesday and Snack Shack on Wednesday movie night and Friday BINGO. We have a schedule to make sure the shack has workers. PYO Workers have their event admissions paid for by the PYO. If you don’t work you can still come with us, but you must pay your way.

Reminder of the RULES when attending PIA and PYO events:

  • No swearing on PIA grounds. The offender receives one warning. If caught swearing again, he or she will not be allowed back on the PIA property for 1 week.
  • There is no littering on PIA grounds. At PYO events 1 child will be designated the *Trash Police*. It will be their responsibility to make sure that all of the trash is being placed in the proper receptacles. Anyone refusing to use the trash can or giving the trash officer a hard time will be asked to leave for the remainder of the event. Also, there will no longer be any gum sold at the snack shack. It was found repeatedly on the basketball court and cement patio outside the hall.
