Meet iGROW teen mentors Wednesday afternoon to ask questions about their experiences and to receive invitations for training in wellness skills and knowledge to help oneself and others. Teens that will start the new school year in the Fall as a freshman, sophomore or junior are encouraged to meet us on May 29 from 3:30pm until 5pm at 103 Old Colony Road in Wellesley Hills, MA.
As a group, iGROW teens were recognized at the Massachusetts state house for leadership in suicide prevention by co-facilitating the Boston Children’s Hospital depression prevention curriculum with 13 & 14 year olds. Two high school seniors also developed senior projects on resilience and co-facilitated anxiety and depression prevention for over 60 sophomores with compelling outcomes. Just to be helpful, another teen edited video clips from interviews. (Click here for two minute video clip.)
The agenda Wednesday:
3:30 Refreshments, bocce (weather permitting) and casual conversation
4:00 Recognition of current peer mentors and achievements in the past year
4:30 Activity to ask teen priorities for the coming year
