VIP Program (Valuable Interactions Among Peers)
VIP LogoThe Valuable Interactions among Peers Program (VIP) matches high school students (Big VIPs) with elementary school age youth (Little VIPs) who may have a need for additional support in their life. VIP was created by a generous donation from the Congregational Church of Needham.

Program Goals:
The goals of the program are for Little VIPs and Big VIPs to spend quality one-on-one time together, for the Little VIPs and Big VIPs to have a safe place to come to interact and play, and to build connections assisting all students in gaining confidence and building self-esteem.

The program allows our high school Big VIPs the opportunity to be a role model for a young person in our community. View pictures of the VIP Program in action.
