04/19/2013 – “Can You…Feel A…Brand New DAY!” – New Beginnings

Hey Boys! 

I know it feels like it’s been FOREVER since we last met up but here we are…3rd Friday in the month so it’s time for our facilitated discussion! This week we will talk about beginnings and how being in a new place is an opportunity for a fresh start. Let’s talk about our experiences moving to DC or a new apartment home, new relationships, jobs etc.and what we’ve learned (or didn’t learn) from these experiences.  We also want to hear your thoughts about our new digs (The DC Center – 1318 U Street, NW) and all your ideas for topics, activities, and volunteer opportunities now that we’ve moved our location and are making changes to our format. 

Remember Boys, discussion starts at 8:30pm and our new home is The DC Center – 1318 U Street, NW. You’ll be able to spot us as the entrance with the rainbow ribbons!

See you out tonight!
