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. Join us on Friday February 22nd, Saturday February 23rd, and Sunday February 24th for this very special, three-day retreat to meet other teens with similar interests and engage in stimulating, conversations and activities lead by their peers—supported by adult leaders—that both encourage open discussion of belief systems and inspire extensive self-reflection.

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.
