“The entire staff at the YWRC is so proud of Cassie and all of her accomplishments. She has shown that success is truly achieved when you persevere in the face of obstacles. She is an amazing mother, peer and woman.” - Ashley, YWRC Childbirth and Perinatal Specialist  
 
We are excited to see Cassie continue to succeed as a young woman and a mom. Learn more about Cassie on our blog.

After School groups have resumed!
 
Our 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th and high school groups meet once a week at the YWRC. Each group starts with a snack and time to share 'happys and crappys' of their last week. Groups then participate in activities designed to increase knowledge and awareness of self-esteem, healthy relationships, body image and reproductive health.
 
For example, earlier this week the high school group worked together to create a safe, inclusive environment by creating their 'Group Promises'.
