  • Strengthening Family Program for Parents and Youth 10-14

    The Strengthening Families Program is a 7 week program. The sessions consist of the first hour when parents/caregivers and youth meet separately with facilitators. Facilitators lead guided discussions with parents, focusing on improving family interactions. Youth participate in games and activities that teach them how to get along with peers, siblings, and parents/caregivers. During the second hour, parents/caregivers and youth meet as a family. Families bond by participating in activities and projects that develop communication and problem-solving skills. Families learn to help youth deal with peer pressure, improve communication skills, solve problems individually and as a family, and how to better enjoy time together.
