Youth Board (YoBo)

Today’s teens have a lot to deal with - rising academic pressures, negative online drama, and managing pressure from friends and family. It can all be tough to juggle and it’s enough to make anyone feel stressed. Luckily Haven youth board - or YoBo - is here to help. 

 

YoBo is a group of active, service-oriented students in the North Shore who de-stress by doing low-key service activities and chatting about their day. The goal is to give back to the community all while picking up some tools that will help you live your best life. 

 

Whether its discussing how to self soothe, running through some helpful time management tips and tricks, or just zoning out while the group makes sandwiches for the homeless - Haven YoBo is here for you. 

 

We meet two Mondays a month at the Haven Wilmette location and membership is free. If you’re interested in checking us out please contact Tanner for more information. 

 

Hope to see you soon!
