5/2/19 Week 11: We are winding down in Carteret County! During this eleventh week of programming, youth spent their session exploring various personality traits of our cohort and connected those traits to the personality strengths that can increase refusal skills.
Parents had the privilege of hearing Mr. Lee Stiles speak about his personal experiences with substance use and how he turned his life around and the positive things he’s doing today with his nonprofit ‘From the Pit to the Palace’. During the family session, participants worked to recognize the resilient factors they already have in place as a family by working though how they coped with a challenge and what they learned from it. “This is the only time we talk and communicate with each other. I’m thankful for this program and for you all,” one facilitator commented.
