Words Of Wisdom (WOW) Talk Cafes
Since 1954, Episcopal City Mission (ECM) has provided mental wellness, non-denominational, pastoral care, and other programming to children in the St. Louis County Juvenile Detention Center. ECM is regarded as an integral, trusted partner in serving the unique needs of children in the juvenile justice system. The chaplains are caring, supportive adults who provide community-based programs to all youth under the Courts jurisdiction who express an interest. Words of Wisdom (WOW) Talk Cafes is a program designed to provide a structural setting to cultivate emotional intelligence in five areas: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship management, and responsible decision-making. The goals of WOW Talk Cafes are to advance social connection and enhance mental wellness.
