Young Adult Retreat
Toward authentic adulthood
Young adults begin the journey toward authentic adulthood; practical training in day-to-day living and personal goal setting. The Young Adult Retreat is designed to address the specific issues facing young adult burn survivors between the ages of 18-25.
The program includes recreational activities and various workshops to address topics including relationships, body image, goal setting and developing a personal mission statement.
Participants identify strengths to build on and areas of needed growth within their own lives. In an emotionally safe and supportive environment, participants share experiences, thoughts, and feelings which creates opportunity for growth and a support network of peer burn survivors.
This retreat-style learning experience is designed to identify and address unique areas of young adulthood transitions and develop life skills useful to burn survivors.
