Now that you know the scoop on the scholarships, let us introduce you to some of the S.W.A.G'iest kids in the city! 😎
 

It's hard to say goodbye to our kids in S.W.A.G but it is so fulfilling to see them shine on their way out! To wrap up our bittersweet end, we challenged our students to create videos reflecting on what they learned this year. Here's one of our favorites from River Rouge Highschool. 

CHOICES - River Rouge Highschool S.W.A.G Students
Over the course of our 12 weeks together, we took the students through an array of sessions centered around forming healthy relationships, developing resilience, and the ability to tackle the pressures of social life, school, and everything in between.
Let's be honest, as parents, we are always working hard to provide for our families, keep food on the table, provide our kids with the latest technology, and all the "cool" stuff you'd think a child would want. What can be better than that? We'll tell you... some good old fashioned quality time.

It sounds simple, but it is indeed something even the families that "have everything" oftentime don't get enough of. See some of the overlooked benefits She Knows Blog  shares, and some new ways you can keep the family close and connected on Families For Life

Take Away:  It is vital that we show our families that we value them, their presence, and the "little things". The simple act of spending time can stem better confidence, conflict resolution between children and spouses, and increase the overall sanctity of the home.
