• The PATH

    Wellspring Center for Prevention has partnered with the Carteret School District to create a safe and structured environment within the school community to address the social, emotional and health needs of our students, ensuring that they are better able to be successful in school and in their lives. The PATH is located at Carteret Middle School and is open to all CMS students and their families- all services are free of charge.


    **The PATH is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
    Description: What is The PATH? Free services and engaging activities for all CMS students. This year we will continue to provide in person and virtual counseling, support and social emotional activities such as Be the Change, Girl Talk and Boys Group. This fall we will offer parent discussion groups to help parents work through the new challenges of youth learning virtually. Please join us anytime during our zoom to meet The PATH staff and find out how to connect your child to The PATH.
