Girl Group's On Purpose
In trying times, it’s hard to stay connected to ourselves and each other. The body runs, the mind races, the heart thunders and the spirit fades. In this Girl Group series, we’ll be exploring ways to deepen self-awareness and find strength in wholeness. Over six sessions, we’ll investigate the link between emotion and physical sensation and create a "document of the body, mind and spirit." Using mediation and empathy exercises, we'll learn new ways to expand the heart and boost the spirit. We’ll continue to practice non-verbal communication, exercise our listening muscles and improve our ability to stay grounded in the world.

Boy Group's On Purpose Training
The beginning of a new year brings new expectations and often an awareness of our changing minds and bodies. Our winter session will provide a counter-balance as we explore identity, self-awareness and provide concrete strategies for comfortably navigating the world. Throughout this Boy Group series, participants will engage in conversation with teen mentors, adult guides and each other. We’ll share stress reduction strategies and talk about healthy ways of managing anxiety.

Girl Group's Unmasking Feelings
We all have a secret identity. Using the metaphor of the mask, we’ll look at the ways we disguise our emotions in order to live up to the expectations of friends, family, teachers and mentors. In this Girl Group we'll explore the masks we wear in different situations and discover ways to unmask our true emotions. Along the way, we’ll talk about how the path to “being ourselves" can be different for each individual. We’ll explore ways of being honest with ourselves and the world while still maintaining compassion and empathy for others.
