OUR IN BETWEEN GROUP IS A SAFE AND CREATIVE SPACE FOR TWEEN BOYS AND GIRLS, 5TH-8TH GRADE, TO EXPLORE AND DISCUSS THE UNIQUE STRESSORS OF THEIR AGE GROUP, SO AS TO MINIMIZE THEIR FEELING OF ANXIETY AND BOOST SELF-CONFIDENCE.

THE TWEEN YEARS ARE OFTEN SOME OF THE MOST CHALLENGING FOR A YOUNG PERSON. TWEENS FACE THE STRESS OF GETTING GOOD GRADES, NAVIGATING SOCIAL PRESSURES AND SOCIAL MEDIA, EXCELLING AT SPORTS AND EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES, DEALING WITH CHANGING BODIES, AND JUST TRYING TO "FIT IN." WITH THIS IN MIND, IN BETWEEN IS TAILORED TO SUPPORT THESE YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN ON THEIR JOURNEY TO NAVIGATE THEIR COMPLEX SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL CHALLENGES BY IDENTIFYING, STRENGTHENING, AND EXPANDING THEIR COPING MECHANISMS AND INNER STRENGTHS. IT AIMS TO INCREASE TWEENS SENSE OF EMPOWERMENT, STRESS TOLERANCE, AND OVERALL SELF-ESTEEM THROUGH GROUP DISCUSSION, CREATIVE ART ACTIVITIES, AND VARIOUS THERAPEUTIC METHODS INCLUDING DIALECTIC BEHAVIORAL THERAPY (DBT). 

IN BETWEEN IS A 90-MINUTE WEEKLY GROUP SESSION. EACH MEETING FOCUSES ON A DIFFERENT THEME, WHILE ALWAYS OFFERING A STRUCTURED, THERAPEUTIC ENVIRONMENT FOR TWEEN BOYS AND GIRLS TO DEVELOP A HEALTHY AND CONFIDENT SENSE OF SELF, GET CREATIVE WITH SELF-EXPRESSION, AND SAFELY BUILD STRONG CONNECTIONS WITH OTHER GROUP MEMBERS.
