If you enjoy making new friends, sharing your thoughts and feelings about friends and relationships, dining out with friends, creating things (arts and crafts, cooking), playing games or volunteering with fun-loving girlfriends, then this group is for you! This is an opportunity for a small group of young women to develop and strengthen friendships, gain confidence in community settings, and create new friendships. There will be a focus on fostering connections among group members in and outside of scheduled group meetings. Jessie Fryman, a certified WerQ instructor and special educator, will be leading WerQ!
