TriCity Family Services and Geneva Coalition for Youth, with the support of Geneva Unit District 304, will present "Trek for Boys" and "Trek for Girls" on Saturday, Nov. 2.

Both Middle School Transition Programs will take place from 8:45 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Geneva Middle School South, 1415 Viking Drive. However, they are separate programs with different curriculum designed specifically for boys and girls.


Middle school is a time of transition. The one-day "Trek" workshops offer fun and engaging strategies to help make junior high less stressful for sixth grade boys and girls. From social to emotional skills, "Trek" is designed to give students the tools to successfully navigate the ups and downs of junior high by featuring professionally facilitated break-out sessions, games and panel discussion led by local high school boys and girls. The "Trek" program was created by Navigate Adolescence of Downers Grove in 2012 to provide boys and girls a strong foundation for navigating the middle school years.

Registration is open until Monday, Oct. 21, for all sixth-grade boys and girls in public, private and homeschools.

Cost to participate is $25 per student, with fee reductions available based on need. All parents are invited to a parent presentation from 9:15 to 10:45 a.m. on the day of the workshop.
