DID YOU KNOW

L.I.F.T is Seeking Families for Parenting Journey Program: The L.I.F.T program at BGCD is seeking families to help create a diverse group of mothers, fathers, grandparents and caregivers for a new group who will focus on increasing confidence, capability, and resiliency as individuals and as parents. Those involved will meet every Tuesday once a week for nine weeks. By reflecting on your own childhood, you will be able to choose what kind of parent you want to be, make positive changes, grow and create your own style of parenting – one that reflects your personal vision and values.

The program features activities, engaging group participation, a family style meal and childcare. Space is limited and registration is required by October 18, 2018. Please contact Rosa Beriguete at (617) 288-7120 or at rberiguete@bgcdorchester.org to register.
