The FRIENDS mission continues to be what it has always been to provide support and education to young people who stutter and their families.
We want our young people who stutter to know
they are strong
they have support
they are not alone
they have FRIENDS who will listen to them.
If this is your first FRIENDS convention, you may be unsure what to expect. What you can expect is to meet kids, parents, siblings, and SLPs all hoping for the same unforgettable time as you. One of our goals is when you walk away on Sunday, we want to hear you tell your new FRIENDS how happy you are that you decided to come to a FRIENDS convention, followed by a "see you next year"!
An important component to the FRIENDS convention is meal times as well as social gatherings in the evenings. Please take advantage of our teen and adult hospitality rooms.
Expect this to be an amazing three-days of laughter, education, tears, support, hugs, and yes FRIENDSHIP. Enjoy!
