YTL G.R.A.C.E for Boys

G.R.A.C.E. for boys starts each meeting with a focus on mindfulness practices that allows the participants to reset and settle in.  As the meeting progresses, facilitators provide opportunities for participants to check in about their week, what is happening academically, socially and if there are any behavioral issues that need to be addressed.  After mindfulness and check-ins, students participate in lessons learning and sharing about relationships, boundaries, respect and healthy ways to identify and express emotions.  These groups cultivate a brave space for boys to be able to build community and develop multiple tools that they may access in difficult situations.
