The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation will hold its first retreat for young adults, ages 18-24, whose firefighter parent died in the line of duty. This retreat will enable those who have jobs or are in college to attend. Sessions are focused on grief and on building life skills. They will also be provided with tools to recognize how grief affects their life and to help them cope. Other topics may include changing family dynamics, financial management, leadership, interpersonal communications, time management, social media, group dynamics, and team building.
The goal is for them to gain skills to deal with grief and to develop increased independence, self-expression and individual growth.
