Year 2. Session 1. Week 1

After more than six months of uncertainty, cautious anticipation, and planning… We are back for Year 2! While nerves were present as the Eagles entered their studio virtually and in person, there was a powerful sense of overwhelming joy. Seeing each other again, and meeting new Fellow Travelers for the first time, it didn’t take long for these young heroes to begin forming what is bound to be a strong tribe.

Mid Session 7: Opportunity for Growth and Independence

The current situation provides many challenges. However, alongside these real struggles is the opportunity for growth. One of our parents recently shared a quote with us that perfectly summarizes our rallying cry.
