“This group discovered the power in not allowing others to have a negative influence in their lives. During Life Skills sessions, participants had the opportunity to practice taking responsibility for their own feelings and, as a result, their own futures. For example, one mom realized she had always allowed people more assertive than her to make decisions for her. Before Climb, she hadn’t found her voice and didn’t really know who she was. By the time commencement arrived, she had discovered the strength and confidence to begin taking charge of all the important choices in her and her daughter’s lives.”
