Gaining and Growing Group
High School Friends

"Some of the most advanced work I have seen in my ten years of dedicated research on this topic."

Dr. Amanda Holt

Gaining and Growing Group (G3) is a specialized program for adolescents with mental health issues who have been the perpetrators of violence in their homes. This program was created by NEDFYS staff. NEDFYS is currently using G3 to serve girls and boys who are incarcerated in the Warrenville Youth Center maintained by the Illinois Department of Juvenile Justice (IDJJ). 

Our staff developed this program through many hours of dedicated research and implementation.
