Due to coronavirus health concerns, return-to-school is bound to look different this year. What we don’t know yet, is exactly what it will look like.
Without some sports resuming, less part-time job opportunities available and a potential shift in school schedules, we are hoping to offer workshops and courses that can give teens a place to connect outside of school. We are already considering small groups of 8-12, adhearing to social distancing guidelines and being outside as much as possible.
Our fall workshops are currently being created but, by clicking here you will be the first to know about The Center for Human Potential’s latest news, our fall 2020 programs and any special offers.
