MIXED ROOTS

  • GTTG Central 3724 Jefferson Street, Suite 200 Austin, TX, 78731 United States (map)

Mixed Roots is a 12-week process group aimed at improving interpersonal relationships and creating a healthy dialogue about what it means to be multiracial on both a personal and societal level. Through fun activities and meaningful discussions with a here-and-now focus, group members will have the opportunity to learn more about the global mixed-race community, explore the difficulties of 'fitting in', and process their own cultural identity in a safe space that fosters acceptance and self-awareness. Most importantly, members will get the chance to foster genuine relationships that celebrate the differences that make each girl unique as they learn to become more comfortable in the skin they're in.

Who is this group for?

  • Multiracial tween & teen girls looking for a safe space to explore their cultural identity and what it means to them
  • Adoptees in multicultural families
  • Girls who feel confused by their mixed-race identity
  • Those who are frustrated or tired of figuring out how to respond to the question "What are You?"

About the Facilitator: As a biracial woman herself, Danielle is no stranger to the cringe-worthy, but oh so common question of "What are you?" Using her own personal experience of growing up with a mixed-race identity, in addition to years of service in youth development, Danielle brings a passion for empowering youth to define their identity in their own words.

Wednesdays, 6:00 - 7:15pm at our CENTRAL location. $50/session.  Limited sliding scale spots available. Contact us today!
