The Junior League of Long Beach is hosting four FREE Confidence & Me workshops around Long Beach and at Avalon School during the 2015-2016 school year! These workshops will include the activities and discussion on the topics of Bullying, Leadership, Communication, Goal Setting and Decision Making. Every event covers a unique topic that is designed to empower our children and the adults of our community to work together to combat bullying. All 5th – 8th grade Girls, Boys, and Caregivers are encouraged to attend. Free lunch or dinner will be provided and free childcare is available for younger children of attending adults.
RSVP is required to all workshops and the attendance will be capped. We anticipate a full session so please RSVP early!
