Virtual Teens Groups
Upcoming Teens Groups
In our efforts to stay connected in this time of social distancing, FRIENDS is really excited to begin offering Virtual Teens Groups for teens who stutter! The purpose of these groups is to create a space where teens can connect and be inspired during this difficult time. All groups will be facilitated by a teen and supervised by an adult.
Please fill out the form below to register. Your parent/guardian will then be contacted to confirm your sign-up to ensure everyone’s safety online.
At this time, the groups will be limited to the first 15 teens to sign up. If you received a “spot” in the group and your parent/guardian has confirmed your sign up, you will receive an email with the Zoom information.
