After School Programs

Fall youth group for kids going into grades 6-7

This group was developed to help today’s preteen and teens better understand the issues they face during adolescence and help them make healthier choices. The group teaches youth how to build on their personal strengths, feel good about themselves and resist the pressures to make unhealthy choices. The program will provide education and information to strengthen their assertiveness skills, emotional regulation, problem-solving skills and help them develop strategies to deal with peer pressure and risky behaviour. The information and activities chosen for this group are presented in a multi-media format utilizing interactive games. The group is both informative and fun and we look forward to working with the participants.

This group will begin on Tuesday, October 1, 2019 and continue for eight weekly lessons from 4:00 p.m.–5:00 p.m., concluding on Tuesday, November 19, 2019.
All of the lessons will take place in the lower level of the Mill Street library.

Images are all around us – on the television, in magazines and on the Internet. These images portray what is deemed to be beautiful, stylish…or even perfect. Those images can affect self esteem and the choices we make.
