Me in the World: An Art Therapy Group for Teens About to Launch

Teens ages 16-18

Growing up and getting ready to leave home is an exciting phase of life, but it also presents us with several challenges. A particularly difficult challenge for many is the development of a strong personal identity within this large world. This group is for older teens wishing to explore their personal identity in the context of our society through art-making and social bonding.


Teen LGBTQIA Support

A safe and affirming environment focusing on connection and support.

Our world is experiencing a tough climate right now, and it's our mission at CFE to provide support and connection to everyone - regardless of gender, religion, race, or sexual identity. We have listened to feedback stating that teens who identify with the LGBTQIA community do not have a surplus of safe spaces. We'd like to change that.
