What to Expect:
Operation Snowball is founded on the belief that youth and adults can make responsible decisions when provided with factual information and an opportunity to develop an understanding of one’s self and motivations.
The weekend consists of speakers, presentations, and activities in which teens are able to listen and interact with one another. There is time for teens to reflect on the information and discuss it in small groups which provides a safer, more private atmosphere. While some topics may be heavier than others, there are a lot of fun activities throughout the weekend. Snowball is a place where all teens can feel accepted and be themselves for the weekend.
Operation Snowball is an ongoing youth and adult cooperative process, focusing on prevention, and founded on the belief that every person has the capacity to make sound decisions regarding life and behavior, based on accurate information and an understanding of self, attitudes and motivations. This process is designed to promote personal and interpersonal growth, leadership skills and healthy decision-making, regarding a broad range of life concerns. Operation Snowball is a PREVENTION program and does not provide individual or group treatment.
