Introducting Personal Growth Groups For Youth Ages 8-16
In addition to the one-on-one work I have been doing with 8-16 year olds, I am teaming up with my dear friend and colleague Will Hubert to start group work. Will is a Marin native with extensive outdoor education and youth mentoring experience. The goal of these summer groups will be to support your children as they transition into being young adults.
Each group session will cover a specific theme and can be signed up for individually, weekend pairs or for all them. Here are the group themes and dates. The groups will run from 4-7.
Resiliency & Grit: The Value of Perseverance July 25th
Self Awareness & Self Care: For A Vital Life July 26th
Relationship Building: Bridging Adolescence, Friendship and Family August 8th
Positive Communication Tools: Creative Means for Self Expression August 9th
The cost is $100 per session ($75 if you sign up for all 4) and free to any parent who organizes a group of 5 or more. In addition if the dates above do not work for you and you think you have enough people to join please let us know what dates might work. We picked weekends in an effort to not interfere with camps.
We have designed a unique experience that will lead children through many important life lessons and provide skill development not generally taught in schools. A majority of the sessions will take place on Mount Tam while others will happen around town.
I realize we are late in the summer planning season but I know some people still feel like they are missing a meaningful experience for their children to help them transition into middle school or the next grade.We recognize that everyone has busy schedules and many will not be able to participate. However we will be rolling out additional programs in the new school year so stay tuned.
