Leadership Skills Support Groups

Often times, it can be comforting to talk amongst one's peers on topics that one faces daily. It can be validating to know that you're not the only one that feels a certain way. Our leadership skills support groups are focused on either rising 8th and 9th grade young women or rising 11th and 12th grade women. The groups will focus on:

  • Improving self-esteem and body image by setting healthy expectations 
  • How to find a balance of involvement in school and other activities
  • Navigating the waters of social media and the affects it has on overall well-being
  • Managing anxiety in social and academic settings
  • Increasing the awareness of the need for a healthy self-care routine including mindfulness, meditation, and relaxation techniques
  • A service oriented project to be determined by the group (The group will pick a local charity and identify a need for this charity. The group will work on their project after discussion time, but within the 1.5 hour group meeting)

The start date and time will be determined by the members and a collaborative effort on scheduling. The fee for this group will be determined based on the number of members. The fee includes group sessions led by 2 highly skilled therapists, all supplies/manuals needed for the group, snacks, a t-shirt, and anything needed for the service project.

We are currently taking interest via email for both a group of rising 8th and 9th graders as well as a group of rising 11th and 12th graders. For more information or to sign up, please email Katie Veit at katieveit@comcast.net.  This group will be led by Katie Veit, LCSW and Monica Flynn-Urness, LCSW.
