Review for Groupworks for Education Inc, Brooklyn, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

GroupWorks is an amazing organization that has helped me grow personally and professionally over the past 10 years. As a guidance counselor in New York City, I had the fantastic opportunity to co-lead several groups with a Senior GroupWorks faciliator. It was there that my love for, and committment to, this organization began. I saw first-hand how powerful these groups were and how many children's lives were positively affected. After a few years of co-leading groups, GroupWorks gave me the confidence to successfully run groups on my own. I was able to reach so many more kids in my school through groups--they are very powerful. In a school environment, where time is so hard to find, being able to successfully and confidently run counseling groups helped make my jop as a counselor much more managable. Additionally, I witnessed these students grow and develop in considerable ways through these groups.

Personally, I have grown tremendously since getting involved with GroupWorks. The professionals in this organization have shaped my life and helped me truly understand myself. The staff is made up of some of the most caring, understanding and intelligent people I know. Any school would be lucky to work with Groupworks, as the students and staff will both benefit tremendously.
