Education is the key to how we grow as individuals and how we flourish as a community. At YCC Family Crisis Center, we strive to educate the community about the struggles that women, children, and men go through when they experience family violence and/or sexual assault. YCC staff members provide skill-building classes for both kids and teens that will help them to better self-regulate and understand and manage their emotions. Our teachers are purposeful about building relationships with the children and teenagers in order for them to build an environment where they feel safe to learn. These classes are fun and educational and help students discover how to apply practical skills within their family and friendships.
