Peers not Fears at the KYC!

i Jan 23rd by

Lorraine @peersnotfears visited the kyc again this month to lead us through some mindfulness and self-care conversations and activities. We discussed what our “baseline” for self-care looks like, and why it’s important to know our own baselines. We discussed and explored the idea of gratitude and how incredibly powerful it is to practice gratitude. In that vein, we are so grateful for the amazing community members who volunteer their time to teaching and leading the young people we serve!

Improv Night!

i Jan 21st by

We had so much fun during our Improv Night, led by Nancy Porter! She taught and led many different games in a way that felt safe and accessible to all who participated! It was so fun to see how creative our teens are, and see some emerge as improvisational geniuses! We can’t wait to have her back next month!

Resolutions and Goals for 2024

i Jan 5th by

A small group of teens spent Thursday evening exploring their goals and/or resolutions for 2024. Our teens were so reflective, thoughtful, and inspiring with their goal setting. We heard both shorter term and longer term goals, and discussed steps to take in order to achieve these, and also roadblocks they may encounter along the way. Once again (and day in, day out), the teens we serve at the KYC inspire and impress us. Keep working toward your goals, keep your head up, and know that you have so many adults rooting for you!
