We started The Youth EXperience as a means to help our youth transition from adolescence into early adulthood. As an adult we have all been through scenarios that have caused us to question who we are and what we were doing, imagine those same feelings for a tween/teen whose still experiencing changing hormones and the affects of their peers. We want them to be prepared mentally and emotionally for all that they will experience.
These are just some of the issues our youth are facing daily. We want to help lower the rising statistics but giving them a place amongst their peers to talk. We created "Let's Talk" a monthly rap session for tweens/teens aged 12-18 to do just that. Facilitated by a Certified Youth Mental Health First Aider NO TOPIC will be missed as we discuss:
- Drugs and Alcohol
- Texting and Sexting
- The Social Media Craze
- The Future
Check back regularly for upcoming dates and locations.
