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.

Annual Benefit
Tuned Up, Tuned In: The Larry Dobkin Event

Proceeds support the counseling, prevention programs, leadership activities and sexual health services Response provides to over 12,000 adolescents and their families each year. Response empowers 12-to 24-year-olds to make healthy life choices.

Giving Tuesday was launched in 2012 as a charitable counterpart to the holiday shopping extravaganzas known as Black Friday and Cyber Monday. When New York City’s 92nd Street Y created the fundraising event with the United Nations Foundation, they could only hope and dream that its impact would spread far and wide. On this sixth anniversary of Giving Tuesday, those hopes and dreams are fully realized, with more than 40,000 organizations in 70-plus countries now participating.
