The Peer-to-Peer (P2P) sessions allow prior New Beginning participants to establish relationships and provide insight on their experiences to new participants. Through these sessions, peer mentors may provide advice and support and serve as role models for newer participants that may have similar situations and challenges. MEM hosts two 1-day Peer-to-Peer (P2P) sessions during each New Beginning’s program. All sessions are held at First Mount Zion Baptist Church from 2-4pm. Lunch is served during the session.
The Life Skills program provides past program participants the opportunity to reconnect and further enrich themselves. The sessions offer the participants interactive methods of coping with stresses and challenges of daily life, skills in communication and literacy, and maintaining healthy relationships, decision-making, continued education, problem-solving, and time management. MEM hosts two 1-day Life Skills sessions annually. All sessions are held at First Mount Zion Baptist Church from 2-4pm. Lunch is served during the session.
