Workshops for Youth & Families

is now a program of notMYkid

Exciting changes are here for notMYkid as we kick off 2018 with the addition of one day workshops and week long summer retreats for youth and teens throughout the Valley. Leadership Workshops Foundation for Youth and Family, dba Workshops for Youth and Families, formally announced their plans to transition their programs to notMYkid following three decades of service strengthening Arizona families. The Founder, Dr. Frances Mills-Yerger, affectionately known to kids as Dr. Franny, stepped back from the helm of the organization and gifted this award-winning and established Valley program to notMYkid to continue the legacy of peer to peer mentoring and building long-lasting connections for youth. Leadership Workshops Foundation for Youth and Families formally closed its operation as of December 1, 2016, and their signature program, Workshops for Youth and Families, will maintain its name and integrity and continue to thrive under the leadership of the notMYkid team. The best part of this gift is having Dr. Franny alongside our team who will continue to assist, mentor and provide specialty pieces, alongside seasoned Workshop facilitators and the notMYkid team.

To learn more about the Workshops for Youth and Family program and/or register for one or more of the upcoming Workshops, please contact notMYkid at workshops@notMYkid.org.
