Teen Series Intensive (Multiple Sessions)

The Teen Intensive Series course is age-appropriate for tweens and teens aged 12-17 and covers topics such as consent, boundary setting, risky behavior, and peer pressure, as well as physical and verbal self-defense skills. Teens learn through engaging and interactive activities and role-play scenarios in a safe and brave space, with a trauma-informed and supportive staff. Teens gain confidence, communication skills, and how to resolve conflict. Because this course takes place over several sessions, please make sure the teen can fully attend all sessions. For all genders.
