Huddles

Huddles are small groups of 2 to 4 students and a leader who will meet weekly, online or in-person as able. Organized around students’ needs, preferences, and schedules, huddle groups provide a safe and friendly space where individuals can give and receive support. Huddles build resilience and self-determination as students are provided with encouragement, opportunities to reflect, and a weekly check-in. There are different types of huddles depending on what you’re looking for:

  • Friendship Huddles to simply make friends
  • Big Question Huddles to make friends AND contemplate life’s big questions in a safe place
  • Faith-based Huddles to make friends, ponder life’s questions, AND explore your personal faith and beliefs
