Chicktime Conroe is truly blessed to have such an amazing group of volunteers but MAC truly goes above and beyond for our kiddos at yes to youth! MAC is a Mixed Martial Arts gym in Conroe. They come visit our kiddos twice a year to teach them self defense skills because our shelter only houses youth for 90 days and every group of kids is different.
That’s no problem for these AMAZING superstars though because they tailor each workshop to the needs of the kids we are serving at the time. We usually break up into boys and girls because of the differences in interests and each time they’ve come, MAC has brought more and more Volunteers so it’s easier to split up.
They are truly an amazing organization and we can’t thank you enough. Today the ladies learned how to escape surprise attacks and unwanted attention situations while the guys focused on protecting yourself in a fight, striking and kicking if needed in self defense.
We had so much fun today with the teens creating spooky cupcakes. They had so much fun and were very creative.
Some of them made multiple cupcakes because they were having so much fun. They will definitely be on a sugar high later!!!
If you are on the fence about volunteering please know these teens enjoy and are so appreciative of these activities and the time we spend with them. Please ask us more about volunteering! It’s only a few hours a month
An amazing time was had by all this morning. We did yoga with our kids.
Becky May was an amazing leader! The kids did an amazing job with the poses, they looked like pros.
Enjoy the pictures of our day!
We had such a wonderful time with our MCYS kiddos today!! The wonderfully talented Mrs. Judy Whitten Rollins taught the kids how to make no bake cookies! All the kiddos were super excited to have a hand in measuring, stirring and of course EATING the cookies!! They we gone as fast as the hardened! Then we played about 20 rounds of Bingo as the kids took turns being the caller! We are truly blessed to serve such an amazing group of children!! See you next month as we bring out our inner artist with Riley’s Graffiti Art!!
Chicktime Conroe had a FUNTASTIC time at Bridgeway House today! Tori Burkhalter came and presented a workshop on acrylic pouring! This is a fun craft that makes everyone feel like an artist!

If not us….then who?
I am so thankful to be writing this post! My co-leaders and I were a little skeptical on whether or not we were going to be able to give the kids at MCYS the Christmas we wanted to give them, however, thanks to the support of friends, family, and our community, Chicktime Conroe is able to finish our first Chicktime year out with a bang! I want to give a special shoutout to Girl Scout Troop 106328 and my Cousins’ Youth Group from TN. The GS Troop were sweet enough to write Christmas Cards to decorate the MCYS house and they were filled with such kindness and love! The Youth Group bought and FILLED 3 backpacks to the rim with goodies for our MCYS youth and got it to Texas! While we appreciate the help we received from all of Santas little helpers, the kindness and love showed by the kids that participated has truly left me in awe! They have all shown such kindness to kids they have never and probably will never, meet!
From all of us here at Chicktime Conroe THANK YOU! We wish you and yours a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!
Today was so much fun! We had our Spooktacular Halloween event today. We played pumpkin bowling, had bat races and tossed skull rings into cups (which is so much harder than it sounds!).
Ladies, I can now truly say that Chicktime is 100% a life changing event! Our kiddos are just so grateful for some love, affection and just some human interaction! If you are ever free the second Saturday of the Month from 10:30-1 pop on by and see us. I can guarantee that you will not regret it!
