Our goal is to advocate for students and families by linking them to an array of services that will open the doors to a better tomorrow.

Virtual Support Groups

  • Friendship Group (Rogers' Social Circle): This group aims to teach and practice social skills with students. It also encourages students to foster peer connections, identify and cope with feelings, and to enhance social abilities.

This group is especially important for student students who are experiencing worry, sadness and grief.
