Immigrant Young Adults and Adult Peer Support Group.
Wednesday nights from January 20, 2021 to February 17, 2021 from 6:30 PM- 8:00 PM (EST on zoom).
The purpose of this group is to bring together immigrant and refugee young adults and adults who need a place to share their personal experiences without having to explain or feel judged by others. We will spend our time focusing on the here and now, learning from each other, and supporting each other to achieve visions for the future.
This group is open to anyone that identifies as an immigrant (regardless of immigration status), refugee, or new citizen. We welcome undocumented, DACA & TPS youth and young adults, refugees, and those who have gone through adjustment of status.

Our center offers community peer support groups for various topics and communities.
Community peer support groups are not therapy groups, though they are led by a professional. Community peer support groups provide coping skills and bring together members with similar lived experiences to support each other. The group contributes to the healing process through attentive listening, encouragement, feedback, education, and shared experience. Group members will learn to better understand themselves, work to change thoughts and behaviors, while receiving and giving feedback to other group members.
