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.


The TAPS Youth Program Teen Coffee House offers free, ongoing teen grief support for ages 13 to 18, who have experienced the death of a military service related family member (parent or sibling). The Teen Coffee House Support Group will provide a safe place for teens to express feelings, share experiences, learn about grief and move forward in their grief process. This program is not intended to provide therapy, but rather to facilitate an environment where young people can find inner strength, learn healthy coping skills, and build supportive relationships.

Teen Coffee House is designed to:

  • Introduce peers who can personally relate to the death of a family member
  • Provide peer mentorship
  • Teach healthy coping skills for managing grief in daily life
  • Develop resilience in youth affected by death and grief
  • Break the barrier of isolation teens may feel after a death
