Week Two Has Come and Gone!

Week Two has come to an end! Reflect on the past 7 days with us by watching the slideshow below:

Huge thanks to Sam for putting this together.


Live United Photoshoot

Today folks from United Way came out to the Boys and Girls Club and we took some fun “Live United” pictures. We’ll post them as soon as they are available. But until then, check out this matchy-matchy group shot!

Week Two Photos are Up!

We’re loving week 2 of ASB! Check out our pictures from this week, and keep checking back as we post more!

A volunteer’s perspective

Our Week 1 volunteer Ondrej wrote a blog post about his ASB experience in Newark. Yes, the blog is in Czech. Perfect time to turn to Google Translate!

Week 2… a year ago!

We’re already loving all of our volunteers this week. It’s also great to see so many returners. Made us reminisce about last year, which in turn made us think about this video slideshow! Enjoy:

In our free time we love to…

… play Catch Phrase!

We LOVE LOVE LOVE Catch Phrase. Some of our games last well into the night  morning (2am).


The game is played in two teams. The goal for each player is to get their team to say the word or word phrase displayed in the disc. One member of a team starts the timer and tries to get his or her team to guess the displayed word or phrase. A clue-giver can make any physical gesture and give almost any verbal clue, but may not say a word that rhymes with any of the words, give the first letter of a word, say the number of syllables, or say part of any word in the clue (e.g., “worry” for “worry wart”). When the team guesses correctly, the other team takes its turn. Play continues until the timer runs out. The team not holding the disc when time runs out scores a point. They also have one chance to guess the word or phrase, with team members allowed to confer; a correct answer earns a bonus point. The first team to score 7 points wins. (Thanks Wikipedia)
