Events

From summer programs to support groups to teen leadership retreats, there’s always a lot going on at Response Center.

Our ongoing events and programs include:

Operation Snowball
Planned and led by teens for teens, Operation Snowball is a fun, intensive yearly weekend retreat that helps participants develop confidence, purpose, and leadership skills.

Summer Programs
We offer a variety of engaging, hands-on summer programs for teens focused on topics of interest to them. Kids spend the summer socializing, learning, and above all, having a great time.

Educational & Support Groups
Throughout the year, our staff leads support groups where you can talk honestly and openly with other teens about important issues like gender identity, stress reduction, self-esteem, and more.
