Youth and Family

Browse activities designed for youth, teens and families to share experiences while building support and friendship. Our hands-on, family-oriented programs can help children improve their emotional vocabulary and learn to express feelings in a positive way, while deepening self-awareness and self-confidence. Together, families have the opportunity to make lasting memories while learning communication tools and coping strategies to regain a sense of control of their lives.
