2022 Young Adult Meetups

These virtual meetups are an opportunity for former North Star Reach campers ages 18-24 to connect with peers in small online gathering spaces. All groups meet under the guidance of a North Star Reach staff member and trained volunteer, who will help to facilitate conversations based on what participants wish to discuss at each gathering.

These are small groups and all members are asked to commit to regular attendance at the 60-minute sessions, which will meet every other week starting in late September running through December. Information, as well as what is shared, is kept strictly confidential. We realize conflicts come up and participants may not be able to attend all sessions. But we appreciate members committing to regular attendance for the benefit of creating a more close-knit community.

The benefits of participating in the meetup group include:

  • Gain a sense of belonging while decreasing feelings of isolation that young adults who live with serious illnesses often experience
  • Share triumphs and challenges of young adulthood
  • Develop friendships and social connections with peers
  • Opportunity to share experiences with others who have had a similar journey
