Junior Youth Group
Printer Friendly Page

One of the greatest tragedies of alcoholism is its impact on the innocent children of the alcoholic. The Junior Youth Group is open to 7 to 16 years of age. We offer speakers who talk about a variety of topics from anger to bullying. There is also a computer lab, crafts and many sports for kids to have fun. The main goal of this group is to let kids be kids. Too often the children of alcoholics are exposed to unhealthy issues. The child may identify with a parent; it could be the alcoholic. The youth are encouraged to express themselves and to not blame themselves for their parent's problem. If this isn't done, it can lead to future relationship, alcohol and substance abuse problems.

It is preferred that a parent/guardian accompany their child/children to the youth group. While the children go to their group or activity, the parents attend a group where they share on parenting-related topics.
