Presentations from Courage to Bloom

Beginning January 2013, Courage to Bloom will be offering a variety of community presentations on healthy relationships. The presentations will be offered by Masters in Counseling student interns. Many of these offerings will be FREE to the community, while others will be offered at very low fee.

Free Community Presentations

The student interns are available to come to your school, church, or community organization to offer a tailored presentation on one of two topics, healthy relationships, or identifying and managing bullying behavior. Gather a group of six members, any ages, and we will come out for a 60 or 90 minute presentation. Call Courage to Bloom at 503-236-0855 or email us at presentations@couragetobloom.com.
