3E Groups for Adults

Game to Grow is excited to introduce our 3E series!

Over three biweekly three-hour sessions, adult participants will play a collaborative storytelling game of fantasy and adventure. Each series focuses on topics related to EmpowermentEmpathy, and Exploration (hence, “3E series”), giving space for players to work towards personal goals related to these areas. Join us for collaboration, creativity, and confidence-building!

We are currently offering 4 of these groups in Summer 2022 (see details below).  They each run for 3 sessions, 3 hours each, every two weeks.
