Event description
Stronger Together peer support group is open to interested youth/young adults ages 14-22. Meets twice monthly.

About this event

For 2021-22, we are offering IN PERSON youth and young adult Stronger Together peer group twice monthly October through May.

Formed Families Forward hosts Stronger Together, peer support group for teens and young adults ages 14-22.  We believe that youth and young adults really are stronger when they share their experiences and work together to improve their own lives and the systems that exist to help youth and families.  

Our youth and young adult group is designed for teens and young adults age 14-22 who have lived experiences in one or more service systems such as:

  • Social Services (foster care, child welfare, family services)
  • Special education (learning or emotional disability or other conditions)
  • Mental health services
  • Substance use treatment and recovery

Registered youth and young adults ages 14-22 will meet in person in Fairfax city at FFF offices. All participants must wear masks. To ensure social distancing for safety, the group will be limited to 8 youth/young adult participants. We will offer beverages, but NOT serve food initially this year.

The group is facilitated by professional clinicians. There is NO CHARGE for participation in Stronger Together group.  Due to the continuing nature of peer support, regular group attendance is expected.  

The group will meet on the following Tuesdays:

2021- Oct 5, 19, Nov 2, 16, and 30, and Dec 14.

2022- Jan 4, 18, Feb 1, 15, Mar 1, 15, April 5, 19, May 3, 17
