Understanding that the years between childhood and adulthood can be filled with difficulty and uncertainty, we strive to provide adolescents with growth opportunities and the tools necessary for success as they begin their journey towards becoming tomorrow's leaders.
> The Zone
The ZONE is a school-based youth service run by the Bergen Family Center from the North Building of Dwight Morrow High School. Students in The Zone develop leadership skills through self-discovery, goal creating and writing. They can receive counseling, support, and tutoring. In 2010, The Zone has helped more than 250 students maintain emotional well-being and develop skills needed for high academic and positive social performance. A summer program beginning July 13th helps orient incoming 9th graders.
The afternoon program meets three days a week over the first two weeks, and two days in the third week.
