Youth & Family Grief Support Group

Event Details

Our Grief Support Group is a program at the Club that provides compassionate care to youth and families in Oshkosh who have experienced a loss through education and peer group support sessions. (You do not need to be a member of the Boys & Girls Club to participate!)

Healing begins in a safe, non-judgmental space where youth and their families can engage in conversations and activities which honor their deceased loved ones. By working through the grief process, individuals can express thoughts and feelings with others who are also experiencing grief.

Here’s how the groups work:

  • Meet consistently throughout the year (typically the 2nd Thursday of every month; visit our online calendar for dates and times of meetings)
  • Facilitated by trained, compassionate volunteers
  • Offer a variety of age-appropriate activities for youth ages 5-18, so activities and peer discussions match developmental levels
  • Make it easy for multiple family members to attend with children and teen groups running at the same time
  • Provide free, onsite child care for families with children under 5 years of age
  • Serve a free family-style meal prior to the start of each support group
