Registration is now open for The Help Group’s Advance LA’s 4th annual Day for Young Adults, which will take place on Saturday, July 16th at American Jewish University. This one-of-a-kind event is designed specifically for teens and young adults ages 16 to 29 and features a wide range of interactive workshops.
“We love offering Day for Young Adults,” explains Dr. Holly Daniels, Director of Advance LA, “because it provides a fun, inviting venue for these remarkable young people to come together and interact with each other while gaining valuable support and knowledge from the workshops presented.”
The 2016 Day for Young Adults offers 15 different workshops that will provide attendees with the opportunity to practice new skills and interact with peers while learning transition skills, sparking passions and cultivating new relationships. “The World of Dating” and “#MakingFriends in the Digital Age” will focus on giving attendees practical information and tools to navigate nuanced social situations like how to ask someone on a date or how to practice good online etiquette to make friends in the digital world and beyond. The career-focused workshop “Ace Your Next Job Interview” will cover ways young adults can respond to questions with more confidence and will conclude with a mock interview so participants can practice the strategies they learned.
The day also includes programming for parents. Parents will have a chance to connect with other parents and share successes and challenges in supporting their young adults in their transition to increased independence. There will be two P2P parent sessions held, one at drop off from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and one before pickup from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. “I really enjoy connecting with family members during our parent workshops – Advance LA can support the whole family system in one amazing day,” added Dr. Daniels.
Every year, the Day for Young Adults draws attendees who return every year and others who are new. The parent of two young adults who attended for the first time last summer shared, “I am very grateful for the opportunity for my kids to attend this conference. At the end of the day, they truly felt inspired and connected, and it helped them to know that other young people are facing similar concerns and challenges. They also got a lot of much needed information from the well-trained presenters at the workshops.”
Space is limited, so attendees are encouraged to register early to secure their first-choice workshops. To register now, click here. For more information, please contact Advance LA at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 818.779.5198.
