*This program is currently on hold. We are looking into making this a once a month program with dates still to be determined.

This ongoing, free, recreation program is to support women veterans and is in partnership with AllenForce/SheForce (see description below). Participants will learn how to make beautiful jewelry such as: necklaces, bracelets, earrings, rings, etc. All of the supplies are provided and you can take home what you make.

The benefits of making jewelry together include: trying a new art form, focusing on self-care, increasing self-esteem, exercising your fine-motor skills, improving social skills, increasing the ability to focus, reducing stress, elevating mood, improving cognitive performance, and having fun!

Note that if a class is cancelled for any reason we will contact you.

Dates: Possibly one time a month with dates still TBD

Time: 7-8:30pm

Place: The Community Center
(Multipurpose Room)
115 N. County Farm Rd., Wheaton

Information About AllenForce:
AllenForce was incorporated as a 501 c3 in May of 2012 to meet the needs of an ever growing Healthy Minds Healthy Bodies program and requests by veterans to offer much more to meet needs not yet being met in the community. Once this not-for-profit organization was formed, other programs and projects have been included so that AllenForce can achieve its goal – To promote a healthy and successful lifestyle for all veterans of all branches of the United States Armed Forces and their loved ones.

Information About SheForce:
SheForce is a trademarked program of AllenForce. Its mission is to empower women impacted by the military with the tools and confidence needed to reconnect and honor themselves as a woman. It teaches tools for relaxation, motivation, and mental focus and provides camaraderie and a support system that balances mental health and well-being through a holistic approach to life.
