Middle School Groups

Middle school students face tough issues every single day and they need to feel that they aren't alone.  These workshops will provide a safe, comfortable setting to explore the everyday issues our pre-teens face.  


Workshops will teach critical strategies through interactive group activities such as role-plays/scenarios, group games, scenario discussions, short power point presentations, supplemental materials, and other creative approaches to maintain interest and develop connections within the workshop.
