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

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been with GroupWORKS since its inception and currently serve as Senior Facilitator and Board Member. I have trained 6-10 guidance counselrs and social workers per year for the past decade, engaging them in weekly and monthly experiential group process trainings.

In turn, we reach large numbers of NYC public school children-- each of our facilitators and our in-school counselor teams reach 15-30 kids per week who learn to flourish in new ways in their daily lives in the school environment. These children, coming from socially, emotionally and financially challenged backgrounds, learn how to function cooperatively and flourish in their daily lives. Group interventions can be more powerful, direct and effective than individual counseling methods.



I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have seen children learn to be able to cope in new ways with bullying behaviors, racism, and problems with authority figures. These groups empower children who otherwise might fall through the cracks and be lost.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Increase the number of schools and organizations in which GroupWORKS services could be offered.
