CKG

COMMUNITY

We offer FREE mental health programs to teenagers and their influencers

of all socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds because mental health does not discriminate.

Bring one of our powerful workshops to your school, work, or community group. Contact Susan.

Each offering is available in 30, 60 or 90 minute versions

and can include multi-week content builds.

Mindful Mondays

Led mindful practice for middle school and high school students.  Held at Steward School’s Bryan Innovation Lab, as well as carefully selected locations throughout RVA to enhance accessibility to more children. Trained CKG Mindfulness coaches and local industry experts lead the practice. 

Parent Chat Night

A gathering of parents for open discussion around mental health and wellness topics.  Intended to be an organic and authentic sharing experience which is less of a support group and more of an ‘I am not alone’ take-away.  CKG partners who are experts in their field lead the discussions with pre-selected topics. Participants leave with enhanced awareness and sharpened tools for navigating stress, family life and mental health and wellness.  Often Parent Chat Night is held in conjunction with Mindful Mondays. 

CKG SPEAKERS BUREAU 

CKG provides speakers by request to promote change, advance its mission, and support individuals and organizations whose work and messages align. Additionally, CKG has a team of impact makers who speak professionally about their journey and lifestyle to maintain positive mental well-being after significant challenges in this area.  Speakers can customize their message for all age groups and specifically aim to impact adolescents and their influencers.    

CKG YOGA 

Free yoga class to reduce stress and increase focus for students, teachers, and families.  Led by certified yoga instructors and held at CKG offices, as well as at various school and community sites. 

CKG COMMUNITY FILM SCREENINGS 

CKG canvasses independent film offerings from national and international sources to bring to local communities at no charge with secured sponsorships. A short list of successful film options are vetted by our internal industry experts for maximum and most supportive impact to community viewership. CKG collaborates with community partners to assemble and deliver a film screening educational experience. 

CKG Chat

and Chill

A specialized custom offering which makes trust building and stress relief possible for students with limited access to supports which teach and foster positive mental health habits.  CKG provides these weekly workshops in partnership with Communities in Schools (CIS).  Sessions include discussions about mental wellness, understanding stress and its effects, developing positive coping strategies, and the practice of mindfulness.  Duration: 30-45 minutes. Ongoing commitment over semesters and school years. 

 

Engagements include concept and content delivery to advance the mental health of client/students. May also include meals, special supplies, books, activities, games, tools and resources for the specific need of the individual student(s). These are smaller groups and often one-on-one opportunities.   

CKG Interns

CKG offers high school and college-aged young adults an opportunity to work in our team environment, learn about not-for-profit operations and leadership, and contribute in impactful ways to the delivery of the CKG mission. Interns can work in one of our departments (Race, Program, Development, Community Engagement) or as support to the whole team.  The young adult voice, enthusiasm, and expertise are vital to our success in staying relevant and current with trends and resources. Areas of study or interest would be sports management or marketing, event planning, mental health and wellness, psychology, volunteerism, nonprofit leadership, general communications, marketing, and public relations.
