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.
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.
**THANKS TO GENEROUS DONORS, OUR WORKSHOPS ARE FREE**
