Young people today are experiencing more stress than ever before with the everyday pressures of school, family, and social life. COVID-19 brought with it a whole new set of stressors, including adjusting to online learning, boredom, and isolating from friends. It is our goal with these free and creative sessions to provide a safe space for teens to connect, communicate, and create with peers who share interests. 

A creative journal is a part diary, part planner, and part work of art. Utilizing a creative journal will help you to stay organized and inspired in a fun and expressive way. You bring your ideas, we’ll provide the journal!

To attend this session, please RSVP using the form below. Please note that for your safety, capacity for this event is extremely limited.
