Those who advocate for the well-being of our nation’s children and youths do so in a number of ways and in a variety of contexts. The demands placed upon those who are advocates for children and youths can sometimes be stressful.
The purpose of the journey group is to provide an opportunity for participants to reflect upon the nature of their work for children, enhance their perspective on the work they do, and give some attention to their own emotional and spiritual needs as advocates for children and youths. Members will be encouraged, in a confidential group setting, to identify and explore some aspects of who they are and what they derive from and bring to their work for children. Check the Shuttle Bus Schedule on the inside back cover for information about early buses to transport participants to the Meditations for the Journey.
