Our organization was founded in 2014 by a group of local parents with experience in youth development, mental health, teaching, coaching and management.
We are proud that one of our founding board members, Glen Magpiong, a resident and coach in Wellesley will be our fundraiser and runner this year.
Community Investors is dedicated to supporting the physical, social and emotional wellness of our youth. Responding to dramatic increases in youth anxiety, depression, and suicides reported in the MetroWest Adolescent Health Survey and other studies, we developed and direct a variety of programs at Wellesley Middle School and Wellesley High School to educate and engage students on the importance and benefits of physical activity, the power of play, the strength and peace in mindfulness and how balance in all areas of life leads to happiness, health and wellness.
Our organization also supports Challenge Success's best practice of playtime, downtime, and family time through a variety of after school and evening programs for kids.
Our directors have a long history of serving the Town on a number of beneficial recreational resource projects, and look forward to continued contributions. While we are a relatively new and small organization, we are proud of our early accomplishments and recent support from the State of MA to do more with our programs.
With continued support we believe we have tremendous potential to make needed, meaningful, and lasting impact.
