Students in grades 6-8 and 9-12 are invited to join Jana Marie Foundation for our summer books clubs!
KNOW Book Club provides an opportunity for self-discovery and self-reflection through vibrant discussions surrounding carefully selected works of literature. In addition, KNOW will create connections, build community, and give readers the chance to think about their own mental health and the role mental health and wellness plays in our lives.
The young adult titles we will explore will have stories and themes related to mental health that tend to be relevant to young people today, and that tie to the mission of Jana Marie Foundation. We will encourage weekly reading of specific chapters in the chosen book each week in order to discuss those chapters as a group when we meet on Sunday. Reading is a powerful source for seeking knowledge, thinking freely and critically, and learning more about the world around us. When it comes to mental health, Jana Marie Foundation feels the more you KNOW, the more you can empower yourself and others to be their best!
