DURHAM, N.H. – Students at the University of New Hampshire’s Stoke Hall are partnering with the Oyster River Youth Association to present their successful “Youth Night Out” program April 15, 2005.

Youth Night Out is a community service project of Stoke Hall offered for middle-school students in the Oyster River school district. The event features dodge ball, karaoke, crafts, basketball, the popular Dance, Dance Revolution game, a DJ for the kids, food and prizes.

The event takes place from 6-8 p.m. at the Oyster River Middle School. There is a $3 admission fee for each participant to cover the food and activity expenses; the UNH students donate their time and skills.

“We had an overwhelming response from Stoke Hall residents who wanted to volunteer—more than 30 students and staff participated the last time and almost 200 middle-school kids,” says Brad Williams, Stoke Hall director.
