The Nurturing Parenting Program is back in person starting September 6th!

This program work with the whole household to build nurturing skills. Each family gets a plan for support and learning based on their unique needs. We make sure that parents are getting their needs met so they can show up in healthy ways. The work is done through a combination of one-on-one sessions with the family, as well as group sessions with other families. By building nurturing skills, we focus on the positive and take concrete steps toward healthier family dynamics. These programs are trauma-informed and evidence-based, with a 35-year track record to back them up. AWARE has a trained facilitator offering both the core program and the program designed for Families in Substance Abuse, Treatment & Recovery.

For more information, email [email protected] or call (907) 586-6623.

For more information on the history of the program, visit www.nurturingparenting.com.

We are sad to announce that CBJ has decided to cancel the 2021 Indoor Soccer season. This decision was not made lightly. Given the continued rise in COVID-19 cases in Juneau, our Emergency Operations Center has determined that this step is necessary to protect public health. We appreciate everyone’s understanding and look forward to playing again soon!

Our YEP crew has been hard at work and playing hard! After a week of building trails and cleaning up parks and beaches, we participated in a ropes course hosted by SAIL to build trust with our team. We also learned how to build our growth and comfort zones within ourselves and had a blast!

Happy Pride, friends. Here is a sneak peak at Shéiyi X̱aat Hít, the new youth shelter that will be opening soon!

Zach Gordon opened the Teen Center 75 years ago to be a place for ALL youth to be loved, safe, and supported. We could not be more proud to be continuing this tradition with so many incredible partners.

Gunalchéesh to our community for making this a reality. We are so grateful.
