VIRTUAL WEEKLY CIRCLES OF SUPPORT FOR YOUTH

FLO/DMX are weekly circles for young women and men that meet once a week to have conversations around: Connection, wellness, emotions, family struggles, “adulting”, and all things in between!

FLO: For Ladies Only and DMX: Divine Masculine Xcellence are led by some of the best community members on DRC's team! Facilitation is based upon lived experiences and knowledge to bring self-awareness, wisdom, and guidance in support of youth and the issues they may encounter. This is a special opportunity to promote sisterly and brotherly bonds that is safe, and confidential. If you know of any young person that is looking for a safe space to talk and meet new people, FLO/DMX may be the right choice. 

Participants will have the opportunity to be themselves, build healthy relationships with their peers, and build a community of support with mentors who care about them. They will gain healthy life and self-development skills like self-discovery, self-expression, communication skills, and leadership skills. 


DRC values the strength of youth voice, and we recognize the obstacles that hinder youth from being their best, especially during these traumatic times. Upon successful completion of 12 weekly sessions, an investment of $250 is given to each participant for their time and commitment to themselves and others.


Ages: 14-17, 18+
Course Duration: 6-12 weeks

Session Duration: 1-2 hours
