Note: This group is 1 of 4 Youth Programs' Virtual Program offerings for young survivors grieving the death of a military loved one. Visit Youth Programs for more information about Youth Programs' Virtual Program to include the quarterly activity book and answers to frequently asked questions.

During our Youth Programs' Virtual Program, the Family Nights offer an opportunity for a unique and exciting experience for the whole family to bond, support each other, communicate together, and have fun. Each Family Night will be different from the next where we might have special guests, exciting themes, creative activities, and simply time to spend together with our TAPS families.

Percussionist Josh Robinson will facilitate an interactive workshop called "Drum It Out!" teaching us how to use drumming as a coping tool, a vehicle for healthy expression/emotional release, and a fun way to connect with others while paying tribute to loved ones. Participants will receive video instructions on how to build a drum or great ideas for found objects they can use prior to the workshop.

Watch this video with Josh Robinson to get ready for our Family Night session on December 13!
