The S&S Summer Program program was a huge success, Dania Simpson, now in her third year of college, was the 2016 summer intern. She joined STAND & SERVE in 9th grade and brought her amazing siblings, then in middle school, Tyra and Kyle with her. It was a gift to have her back in the mix. The Peer Eds ruled the summer program and 4 were awarded BOX SEATS for a Weezer/Panic! At the Disco show from Live Nation! Thank you Gina Dhaddey & Courtney Tjaden! The variety show and summer pool party with many thanks to the Wiggins. as usual, was a complete blast. Check out our Facebook Page for more Pics!
We topped off the summer Peer Education Training component with an excellent all day training, provided by Dr. Sue Wolf, on the impact of trauma on the brain and effective strategies and tools when working with youth, families and service providers. Thank You Sue!
