FSYF invites repatriating middle school students to join us for a workshop designed to help empower them with tools for their re-entry process.  We'll brainstorm strategies for adjusting to life in American middle schools, the new reality they will be facing due to COVID and the coping skills needed for a successful year.  There will be a panel of students to share their personal experiences. The teen workshop will be led by Megan Norton.

While students are in their session, parents are invited to participate in a discussion moderated by FSYF Board member Kim DeBlauw. This session will feature other recent repatriated parents of Middle School students.
