MPNH has an extensive and appealing range of programs and activities for pre-teens ages 8-12 and teens ages 13-18. Led by trained staff and peers, our programs offer young people a chance to develop confidence and skill and have fun at the same time. From movie nights to coffeehouses, hiking and kayaking to help with homework and learning to fit in at a new school in a new country, we try to meet the needs of the kids who come to our House. Some of our activities have a small fee, some are free, and in all cases, funding is available through our Access Program.
