Youth Groups

"Inspiring, confidence building, friendship building, fun"...these are just a few of the words used by kids to describe what these groups have meant to them. The foundation of these groups is built on relationship, we listen to what the group wants, we start every class with a check in to give every participant a chance to speak and be heard. The group is designed around what the kids are asking for or talking about. Past classes have focused on...how to manage my anger, how to deal with anxiety about tests, how to speak up to peers when I don't feel confident, how to share my feelings with my family or friends. These groups are a favorite of our staff because they are SO POWERFUL! Here is a little general information about these fabulous programs.
