Upcoming Events

Use our Calendar to import events into your personal calendar. 

We ask all teens who participate in our meetings and events to register as members each school year. This not only helps us keep in touch with those who are interested in our group, but also ensures that they see our behavior expectations and agree to the conditions set forth on the application form. We want everyone in attendance to feel secure that that others will not talk about things learned about specific individuals with others. This means no gossiping! We will remind everyone of this very important issue at each meeting.

Our January meeting will be on Tuesday, January 8, 2019, from 6 – 8 pm at the Johnson County Library – Antioch (8700 Shawnee Mission Pkwy, Merriam, KS 66202). A speaker from Great Oaks Therapy will lead our talk. More details to come soon!

February 2018

We will meet Tuesday, February 5, 2019, from 6 – 8 pm at the Johnson County Library – Antioch (8700 Shawnee Mission Pkwy, Merriam, KS 66202). Natalie Bergman from Horizon Academy will lead the talk.

Past Events

December 2018 Meeting

ADHD Coach Diane McLean and her lovable lab, Digby, helped us prepare for some holiday baking by using a backwards planning technique. 

November 2018 Meeting

Rachel Nagy from Visionary Life Counseling and Gateway of Hope talked about mindfulness at “How Do I Get Stuff Done?”

Rachel Nagy showed her planner. She color coded the month, then realized she spent too much time organizing. Don’t let that be a means to procrastinate!

October 2018 Meeting

Psychologist Stella Fernandez and Kristin, an intern, discussed navigating friendships and peer relationships. 

Dr. Fernandez helped promote a lot of group interaction at the “Is it you, me, or my teen ADHD” talk on social skills.

September 2018 Meeting

Katherine Melton presented “Building a Resilient You” after our Teen Leaders lead everyone through several rounds of a fun game. We experienced technical difficulties with the online viewing so it is not available.

Before the speaker’s presentation we played a fun ice breaker – collecting clothespins without getting hit by the pool noodle. 

Summerfest 2018

We had a table at the KC Public School’s annual Summerfest! Sarah, Connor, and Anna helped answer questions and spread the word about our group.
