Drop-In Summer Program 2023

Introduction to Our New Director

Hello! My name is Heather Anderson and I’m so excited to be the new Director for the Bethel Youth Drop-in Center. I have worked with children in various capacities professionally for over 20 years.

I am a mom to two and a Preschool Center Director during the school year. I am also a lifetime Girl Scout and have been a volunteer-leader since 2002.

I am looking forward to a fun and enriching summer program where we will “engineer” fun by doing various hands-on projects including designing roller-coasters and race cars!
