Youth Connect

Guided Passages’ Youth Connect Program is a gathering place for Teens to connect with themselves and others in an authentic and meaningful way while also learning some tools and strategies for navigating the teenage years. During our in-person meet-ups, we utilize the Council format centered around a specific topic or theme. Through the use of sharing, active listening, games, activities, and hanging out, participants are able to build a sense of community and belonging and find their own voice.  Some sample topics include, but are not limited to, mindfulness, anxiety, solution focused thinking, our thoughts and why they matter, identity, self-confidence, quality friendships, and goal setting. Sessions are a good mix of lighthearted fun paired with moments of deeper group work and solo time. There is a minimum enrollment of 6 participants and a maximum of 12 for each program.

Youth Connect for your group or school

Are you looking for additional ways to support the youth that you serve?
Are you looking for more wraparound support to help the youth in your organization build their social and emotional skills, create deeper connections with their peer cohort, learn how to authentically express themselves, build self-confidence and tap into their sense of purpose?
Guided Passages can now bring our Youth Connect Program to your group, school, or organization.

What we deliver:

Be messy and complicated and afraid and show up anyways.
