4/29/19 Week 7: This week we finished up the SFP 10-14 portion of the program and transitioned into the Powerful Families, Powerful Communities program. During this transition we hosted a panel of guests that answered questions about dealing with peer pressure, social media influences, fitting in, setting goals, and handling stress. We discussed community resources and where to go/where to recommend when a family needs help.
The families also completed letters to one another about what they’ve learned through the program so far, and what skills they hope to continue using in their homes.
Both parents and youth really took time to think through the responses that went into their letters. From a facilitator point of view, you could see that they had benefited from many of the lesson tools and they enjoyed the family activities more than anything.
