Parent Group Topic: Building Your Support Network -What do you need? How do you find it? Parents will identify their strengths and social connections to determine how to build a network of support outside of the group. We will take a look at how social media and Facebook can be utilized as a part of this supportive network.
Youth Group (ages 11-18) Topic: Who Took the Cookie from the Cookie Jar? (Responsibility)-Youth will learn about the importance of taking responsibility for their actions. Youth will learn how their behaviors have benefits or consequences. The youth will be able to identify moments where they should have taken responsibility but didn’t and how moving forward, they can do something different.
The Parent Group, Youth Group (ages 11-18) and child activities (ages 2-10) take place concurrently. A potluck meal is served and participating families are asked to consider bringing a side dish to share. Childcare is provided free of charge. Certificates of Attendance are also available.
