ADAP YWC for Grades 7 & 8 Meeting time TBD
The  Youth Wellness Council provides Weston students with a safe environment to discuss the challenges they face in middle school. With a focus on Connection, Integrity & Wellness ADAP is kicking off this new program specifically tailored to 7th and 8th grade Middle School students. The meetings will focus around the core principles of connection, integrity & wellness. This group is open to all 7th and 8th grade middle school students in Weston whether they attend WMS or another school. Tim Walsh will facilitate each meeting. He has a very real and natural way of connecting with kids & adolescents. If interested please see the invite and application below for more details.

ADAP YWC for Grades 9-12 Meeting Time 7pm-9pm
The Youth Wellness Council provides Weston students (9-12) with a safe environment to discuss the challenges they face in high school. And to learn about the risks associated with substance abuse. In addition, YWC members may mentor younger students, become peer leaders, and help with ADAP’s awareness programs in the Weston schools and in the community. YWC is comprised of 25-40 Weston students in 9 – 12th grades.  Tim Walsh is the director and facilitator for the Youth Wellness Council. He was hand-picked by John McGeehan who designed the program and has facilitated YWC (formerly YLC) since its inception.  The group meets monthly-October through May-on the first Monday of the month from 7–9 PM in the Community Room at the Weston Public Library.  Since we meet only once a month it is important that members attend each meeting.

Member commitments:

  1. YWC members must attend the monthly meetings. (Two excused absences are allowed.)
  2. Participation in ADAP projects is REQUIRED including Pre-prom event & Rides for Lives.
  3. Confidentiality: Members respect the privacy of others in the group.

There will be a parents’ meeting on January 6th.  Tim Walsh will present the program and expectations.  The meeting will be in the Community Room of the Library at 6PM.

Space in ADAP’s YWC programs is limited and acceptance is on a first come basis.
