A place to discuss hot topics with friends who get it!  So what’s on your mind?     

IGOTCHU is a support group where youth engage in hands-on experiences to prompt conversations about subjects relevant to entering adulthood.  It’s a judgement free zone where youth and mentors talk about it all: making money, school & college life, sex & relationships, depression & mental health treatment, stress & how to deal with it, self-esteem & body image, self-care, etc.  Together peers strategize about constructive ways to deal with life’s challenges.  Light Dinner provided.
