Whatever the nature of school this fall, teens are experiencing prolonged and considerable stress. Fortunately, Moving Traditions teen groups help teens deal with pressure and build their resilience, while keeping them connected in a meaningful way to each other, to a positive adult role model and to the Jewish community.
Teen groups include Rosh Hodesh for girls, Shevet for boys, and Tzelem for LGBTQ+ teens. Each group brings together 7-10 teens and a trained adult leader, who together explore the challenges and joys of teens’ lives, drawing on social emotional learning, an understanding of teen culture, and Jewish wisdom and values. National studies of our teen groups indicate that:
• 87% reported that they made some really good friends in their group.
• 86% reported that they learned skills to help tackle challenges/problems when things get hard or stressful.
• 84% reported that they became more aware of gender stereotypes and inequality in society.
Please join other 8th and 9th grade Denver-based prospective teen participants and their parents to learn more about Moving Traditions’ Rosh Hodesh group for self-identifying girls. You will get to meet the Group Leader and hear what motivates her to engage with teens.
