Fort Bragg Child and Youth Services/School Support Services is hosting a Teen Army Ready Resilient program the week before school starts in late August.  Army children not only face the challenges of high school, but also face significant challenges growing up in the Army Family lifestyle, permanent change of station moves, multiple parental deployments, and potential mental and physical injuries to their Parent(s). 

Resilience training has shown to help Army children cope with adversity, perform better in stressful situations, and thrive in the Army lifestyle.  Students will learn valuable resilience skills through self-awareness, self-regulation, optimism, mental agility, and connection.  These will help the teens in their academics, relationships, preparing for college and/or work force, and of course, navigating the Military lifestyle.

The program will include not just classroom resilience training, but also an experiential learning program.  In this session, teens will have an opportunity to participate in an escape room, kayak and canoe outing, Fort Bragg’s engagement skills trainer and obstacle course, and zip lining at ZipQuest.

To register, more information, and questions, please feel free to contact the program coordinator for the Fort Bragg Teen Resilience Program, Gerhard Guevarra (Fort Bragg School Liaison Officer, Child and Youth Services), +1 (910)432-1023, gerhard.v.guevarra.naf@mail.mil. There is a max enrollment of 20 teens for this program, participants will be taken first come first serve.
