Sarah’s Family Group (Not pictured: Emil and Carl)
The Family Group component of CfY is one of the main times during our years together where we get to know everyone’s character, watch dynamics of the group play out, where we truly become a family. A lot of the times you get placed into a group of complete strangers. The family group component is important because we are forced out of our comfort zones, able to talk/hang out/learn about our differences and similarities with open minds….we can be ourselves (students and mentors) by having fun, without judgment. Family Group is a safe and supportive environment. Our family group is special because someone’s always there to lend a helping hand, there’s always a smart joke being cracked, I’ve made 11 new friends, and it’s always a good time!
