Operation Breaking Stereotypes (OBS) is a non-profit, service-based organization working that works with schools throughout New England and New York, to help students address ethnic, socio-economic, gender, and racial stereotypes through writing, reading, music, photography, and personal connections. On Friday, April 8, 2016, the Maranacook OBS group went to Lewiston High School to shadow their partners for a full school day and participate in teambuilding and sense of self activities.

Maranacook high school students participated in Teen Issues on March 31st. There were 44 different presentations and all students chose 4 to attend. The day is to teach students about societal, mental, physical and emotional issues that teens face today as well as strategies on how to overcome and grow, to help the students grow into healthy and happy adults. This year’s theme was “Survive and Thrive.”
