MS/HS Skill Building Groups

Grades 7-12

FALL SEMESTER

Middle and high school skill building groups teach adolescents and teens valuable pro-social skills, including stress management, self-advocacy, emotional regulation, and social prediction.

Trained facilitators use the evidence-based Social Bridges® curriculum to lead group lessons. As participants engage in discussion, role play, games, and cooperative and competitive activities, they form meaningful connections with peers and gain vital emotional and social competencies.
