Some amazing things are happening at the Teen Center USA in Elk Grove. Boys and girls are taking part in regular group discussions, facilitated by Face2Face staff and volunteers. These talks are helping to improve the teens’ mental, emotional and social well-being.
Last night we held another Girls Talk group discussion event. Thirteen girls showed up to participate. There were thirteen teen and preteen girls that showed up for last night’s event. These group chats are growing tremendously with each passing session, and there’s a lot of good being done. Margaret brought pizza for everyone. (Thank you to the Pizza Hut in Elk Grove for the discount!) Topics covered in the talk ranged from food and hobbies, to bullying and cutting. There was a lot of support and love in the group tonight, and even a few shed tears.
The facilitators for last night’s Girls Talk were Margaret, Megan, and Ashley. They all did a fantastic job facilitating the group discussion. We are especially grateful to Megan, who volunteered her time to co-facilitate tonight’s session. Thank you, Megan!
