PAST EVENTS

Emotional health workshop

In partnership with Be Strong International, YG Institute took part in a workshop where parents were guided in how to be emotionally healthy with Nicole Klein. Peers were taught how to effectively manage problems and to become problem solvers rather than instigators to difficulty. Expressing one’s feelings was a large part of what it means to be emotionally healthy, as well as being communicative with any issues or emotional blockades one may be having. It is always important to have one’s emotional health in check, as it can affect parenting and the well being of one’s children. With this partnership, we were able to have a workshop where parents were able to get an in depth explanation of all of these concepts and ideas, hopefully leading them to have a more fulfilled and well-rounded parenting experience.

Mother’s day was a success!

We are happy to announce that this year’s annual Mother’s Day celebration was a success! We were able to give out bags worth more than $150! We would like to extend a thank you to all of our donors and everyone involved who made it possible. With the help of Dr. Grisel Voutsinas from the Banyan Halfway House and Michelle Taylor at the Riverside Halfway house, this drive was made possible. We are so grateful and we hope to be able to this drive again next year to help mothers in need in our communities.
