Transitioning to college is an exciting, emotional and often challenging time for both young adults and parents. YES Community Counseling Center’s BRIDGES Program is hosting Transitioning to College, a FREE workshop for parents and graduating high school seniors transitioning to college this fall. The program is on Wednesday, July 13th from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at YES Community Counseling Center, 152 Center Lane, Levittown. The purpose is to empower young adults to navigate the challenges of starting college and assist parents during this sensitive milestone.
The evening will kick off with a panel of speakers addressing young adult social and emotional growth and common college transition issues. Next, The Safe Center LI will focus on creating healthy relationships, including sexual assault prevention. The final part of the program offers a choice of workshops from study skills to match one's learning style, to what college students should know about drugs and alcohol. A separate parent discussion will focus on ways to support their child's transition to college. Naloxone training will also be offered to both parents and young adults and Spanish translation services will be available for parent sessions. The College Transition program is also supported by YES Community Counseling Center’s PACT Initiative as well as Massapequa Takes Action Coalition.
