Started in the Summer of 2016, NYCHC’s teen program is growing. We recognize that adolescence is a trying time for both young adults and parents. Teens need a space to find support among their peers, and to decompress from the day to day struggles of adolescence and living with a bleeding disorder.
In June, teens volunteered together on an urban farm in Brooklyn. It was a great way to kick off summer, enjoy the outdoors, and spend time with the bleeding disorder community! In August, we gathered a group of teens for rock climbing in Long Island City.
At our 2016 Education Day, we’ll host a Teen track featuring breakout sessions and activities geared just for teens. Coming in 2017, we’ll also be hosting more teen-related events.
