As February begins, the HALO Learning Center is excited to shift our focus to our new life skill of the month: self-discipline. Self-discipline is defined as “the ability to control one’s feelings and overcome one’s weaknesses.” We are looking forward to exploring this life skill with the HALO Youth and reflect on how self-discipline can help us reach our goals. This week, HALO Youth practiced self-discipline while assembling fleece pillows. The youth will continue to explore this skill in February as they create pointillism paintings, origami, and tape art.
We are also thrilled to announce our exciting Spring 2014 Long Term Workshops. While Cosmetology is already in full swing, the rest of our workshops kicked off this week. The HALO Youth have the opportunity to participate in Yoga, Improv, Woodworking, Interplay, Education, and Finance Workshops. Endless thanks go to our amazing volunteers and their commitment to empowering the HALO Youth.
