The Coghlin Youth Development Programs
SYFS operates unique, specialized programming and services for youth throughout the year. Many of these programs are designed to build skills, provide opportunities for personal growth, and foster healthy relationships.
You Go, Girl! Afterschool (Middle School)
Welcome to You Go, Girl!, one of Shrewsbury Youth and Family Services most popular programs. This program focuses on the concerns, hopes, dreams and goals of middle school girls by discussing the important changes they are experiencing during this critical time in their lives. They will learn how to strengthen their self-confidence, manage emotions, and communicate better with friends and family members. There will be plenty of practice in decision making and problem solving too! They will learn how being healthy and drug-free will help them become the person they are meant to be. We have included ways to stay drug-free and help others stay drug-free. Finally, they will practice setting goals and thinking about ways to make the most of themselves!
This program will run for four week long sessions on at Sherwood Middle School.
