Grow Through What You Go Through:
Empowering Young Minds Through Wellness


April 19th, 2023 at Argos Farm, 9:00AM-2:00PM
1250 Lacey Road, Forked River, NJ 08731

Thank you SO MUCH to all the schools, chaperones, vendors, staff, speakers, and performers who attended Grow Through What You Go Through. We’re so thankful that over 60 New Jersey students from Bergen County all the way down to Camden County were able to share this special day with all of us!

We’d love to give a special thank you to Alexa Drubay for starting the day with playfulness and joy through Laughter Yoga, KYDS (Konscious Youth Development & Service) for teaching our attendees the value of mindfulness and inner harmony, and Ralph Colombino and his wonderful cast of actors from Lost Angels for sharing a moving performance dealing with bullying, racism, sexuality, suicide, and anxiety. 

And of course, thank you so much to all the organizations who came to table. We appreciate all the work you do for the community and we know so many students left with some valuable resources and support! Thank you for sharing your time with these students and reminding them that they are never alone.
