Aurora Youth Options is hosting the Conflict Center class on Emotional Intelligence from April 27th-June 15th. The class is for 6th-12th grade students. It is an 8 week course; out of those 8 classes, the same parent would need to attend 4 of the classes. Emotional Intelligence & Critical Decision Making is a skills-based curriculum specifically tailored to address concerns and difficulties youth are experiencing around making healthy decisions for themselves as well as how to recognize their emotions, especially anger, and manage them in non-violent ways. The class is typically $100 per family, however, we are able to offer it for FREE. Please see the attached flyer for more information. To RSVP a family or for questions, please contact Natalie Kaiser @ x2613 or nataliekaiser@aumhc.org
