This series will be led by guest facilitator Kat Castañeda. Kat has extensive experience as a Boston-based clinical social worker, coach, program developer, trainer and leader. She is passionate about partnering with youth in ways that make them feel whole, seen, authentically connected and capable of envisioning and living their desired lives.
