IN-PERSON WORKSHOPS PAUSED...
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our in-person workshops are currently paused. As soon as it is deemed safe by local health authorities, we will continue our programming.
In the meantime, please check Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter for updates and grief resource suggestions.
Many thanks for your patience - stay healthy, wash your hands, and practice social distancing!
Bernie's Buddies Workshops integrate a peer support environment where youth who've experienced a death loss in their lives interact and support each other. Participating together in a therapy dog visit, yoga exercise movement and mindfulness, and creative grief conversation helps foster a sense of community and belonging while navigating grief emotions.
**Please note the loss does not have to be recent.
Participants receive a certificate of completion and a photo of
our therapy dog.
Parents and caregivers are encouraged to visit with each other while youth in their care are participating in the workshops.
**OUR WORKSHOPS ARE FREE**
