“Member Circle” is a zoom meeting led by a Community Leader where students will have the opportunity to share their breakthrough moments with each other and discuss a particular theme. It is a safe place to talk to your peers, learn from other students' experiences, and engage in a group discussion.
Recitals are an opportunity for students to showcase a performance in front of a live audience.
