This free 7-week workshop series builds strong family communication skills to help youth be more resilient and resist peer pressure.
The program works with youth ages 10-14 and their families as they perform group exercises to identify social challenges and increase healthy communication skills.

Each session starts with a free dinner provided by us, then the families are divided into 2 groups: parents, and youth. Free child care is available for those under age 10 if needed.

What to expect:
-Entire program is free to participants
-Boxed meal provided for each family
-Child care from a qualified, background-checked Bacon Street employee or intern
-Interactive family games and activities to promote family-time
-Peer-to-peer group workshops: parents in one room, youth in another
-Full-family wrap-up to talk about the night’s activities
