I will have two spaces open this fall. I wanted to ask you to please pass this on to anyone in your circle of friends or neighbors, who might be interested in a full day program. I will be happy to email them information about my program and meet with them, if they think we might be a good match, after reading my material.

I appreciate you passing this on. Bj Richards/Bj;s Kids

Bj's Kids philosophy statement:

Parent Cafes organize this Thursday at 7 pm

We are the Village it Takes…

Make an impact on the well-being of our kids and this community by joining a grassroots effort
initiated by the Parent Action Committee (formed in cooperation with the Citizens’ Council Subcommittee on Teen Alcohol and Substance Use.)

Our hope and vision involves the creation of Parent Cafes –

Parent to parent get-togethers that promote open and frank conversation on relevant topics in our teens’ lives.

We need your talents, energy and influence!

If you are interested in helping get these Parent Cafes up and running – either by leading a group or hosting an event – please come to our first orientation meeting on:

Thursday, July 29th at 7 p.m.
Oak Park Township Youth Services
105 S. Oak Park Avenue, Oak Park

(The meeting will begin promptly at 7 pm. Parking is available in the Township lot.)

Keeping our kids safe requires coming together as a community. Please join us!

RSVP at if you would like to join this exciting effort.

Also let us know if you’d like to join our Facebook page!
