Program Objectives: The program objectives of CATCH – Life Skills Program is to be the next level of support and mentorship for high school girls ages 15-18.  This program is a key developmental asset factor for the prevention of school to prison pipeline, teen pregnancy, drug & alcohol addiction, and low-self-esteem/self-image; while sparking their highest potential.

The sessions will be accomplished in 4 modules:

The sessions will take place virtually once per week for 60min.  Please make sure you have the Zoom App.  YWCA Lincoln CATCH Life Skills takes place Monday evenings at 6 pm on Zoom.
