VIRTUAL & IN-PERSON

STUDENT SUPPORT GROUPS

Calm Waters’ FREE, 6- to 9-week Virtual and In-person Student Support Groups are open to any child, Pre-K to 12, in the state of Oklahoma, who has experienced loss due to:

  1. Death
  2. Divorce
  3. Foster Care & Adoption
  4. Military Deployment
  5. Incarceration
  6. Deportation

Each support group is organized by age and availability and in-person groups will commence once up to six students at the same school address are enrolled in an in-person group. Due to COVID-19 and evolving school schedules, the in-person student support groups will begin at each partner school’s discretion and each school may host as many 6- or 9-week support groups as needed.

All support groups are led by Calm Waters’ highly-trained support group facilitators. If you would like to receive the 20-hour FREE support group training and facilitate your own virtual or in-person student support group, please register to become a Calm Waters volunteer or email the Calm Waters Assistant Programs Director, Hannah Showalter, at Hannah@calmwaters.org and call 405-841-4800 for more information.

The continued goal of all student support groups is to teach children coping skills that they will utilize for the rest of their lives.
