Transitioning through anything can be difficult, but elementary school students heading to middle school and middle schoolers heading to high school need all the help they can get.

The Coalition for Youth of Lower Merion and Narberth will host its third Transitions Program to discuss the difficulties that accompany changes for students as well as how parents can help their children feel more confident. The workshop will also focus on how students should manage their Web presence.

Parents, students and anyone interested will have the opportunity to ask a panel of speakers questions and speak with high school students from the coalition's Youth Advisory Council. Al Vernacchio, a teacher at Friends Central profiled in the New York Times Magazine for his openness with students taking his Sexuality and Society courses, will be there for the discussion along with Wendy Cramer from the Renfrew Center and Stephanie Newberg, a therapist with an expertise in cyberbullying.

The Transitions Program will be held March 11 from 3 to 5 p.m. at Lower Merion High School. It is free and open to the public.
