PAN Young Adult Group

What We Are

This is a peer led group for young adults, including college students, ages 18 to 30 years who have graduated from high school and who live on their own or who are about to move out on their own. There are two facilitators who provide intervention as necessary, resources, help keep group members engaged and help encourage the group to plan outside activities. 

In order to ensure that group members feel comfortable with sharing personal information, only group members and the facilitators may attend the meetings. Please see information below for nearby restaurants where parents and caregivers can wait while the group is in session.
