Story Club is taking off this Thursday! For the next 6 weeks, the intergalactic travel experts at Story Planet in Toronto and the in-house superheroes from 826NYC in Brooklyn will be working together to publish a duel-city travel guide: The Young Astronaut’s Guide to Toronto/The Young Superhero’s Guide to New York. It’s a truly unique project that we’re absolutely over the moon about!
Story Club is designed for students in grades 3-8 and space is limited. If you’re interested in this program, contact Joe at joe@storyplanet.ca to find out more.

During this workshop, teens will learn mindfulness practices that will be helpful them manage stress, improve attention and focus and increase overall well being.

The program will be run by Sara Marlowe, MSW, RSW, a clinical social worker who has offered numerous mindfulness groups and workshops for teens, adults, children and families. Follow this link to find out more information about this workshop or to register.
