Gluten Free Youth Group

Mission statement:
To empower youth on a gluten free diet to advocate for their own needs, overcome challenges of being gluten free in order to continue living a happy, healthy life and engage in a setting where being gluten free is the norm.

The Youth Group is for youth ages 10-17
Youth don’t have to have a Doctor’s diagnosis of Celiac Disease but should be following (or learning to follow) a gluten free diet.

Youth Group Meeting Details:
Youth Group events take place at the same time and location as the Adult group. Sometimes we join the adult group and sometimes we meet separately.

Meet our Youth Group Co-chairs:
Heather Walsh
Lydia Powers

We would like to thank Andrea O’Keefe, M. Ed for her years of service as the Youth Group Co-Chair! We will miss her participation in our group, and wish her the very best luck in her new location!
