The webinar

Connections Counseling Mentoring Coordinator Kim Hurd and Community Relations Coordinator Tom Farley will talk about the value of interdependence and how to balance personal needs and wants with those of others. In addition, they will explore healthy connections and how those relationships help “redefine fun,” challenging the belief in young people that abstinence and recovery require loss of friends and fun.
