In Search of Me Café at the Boys & Girls Club offers Nassau County teens a place to learn life skills during after school sessions.
The new In Search of Me Café at the Miller Boys & Girls Club offers Nassau County teens a safe place to learn life skills during after school sessions led by India Edge. “It is because of Bill Gower and the Nassau Boys & Girls Clubs Foundation that we are in this wonderful room tonight,” said Stan Cottle, In Search of Me Café?s creator, as he addressed 24 teens plus guests in the new Café. “The support of the Boys & Girls Club Board, Area Executive Director Yvonne Thompson, Unit Director Jamie Thompson and Program Director Sherryl Smith is invaluable.”
Miller Club teens were joined in the Café by teens from the NFL YET Boys & Girls Club in Jacksonville, as well as parents and distinguished guests. After enjoying pizza and soft drinks, the teens were guided through an orientation of the In Search of Me Café curriculum by Ms. India. Then, the teens clustered around four provided laptops and explored various life skills topics on their own.
Ms. India Edge interacts with teens as they discuss bullying in the In Search of Me Café. Beginning the week of September 26, teens at the new In Search of Me Café will experience interactive life skills learning on a regular basis through a pilot curriculum program. Led by Ms. India, the teens will interact with a wide variety of topics, as well as other teens around the world, at www.insearchofmecafe.com. Their responses will be documented, with some teens appearing in future videos on the In Search of Me Café website.
