For parents and youth ages 10-14 in WASD, SFP 10-14 is an exciting opportunity for families as it affords them a chance to spend quality time together while learning new skills through games and interactive projects. For 7 weeks, parents and youth attend a weekly 2 hour session where they will have lots of fun learning ways to promote family bonding, to keep lines of family communication open, and to use their families’ strengths to solve problems together.
