About the event

This program is designed to help teens and tweens develop essential interaction skills through fun games and activities. Each session provides a safe and supportive environment where kids can practice expressing emotions, role-playing social scenarios, and learning to respond appropriately in various situations. The goal is to help them build confidence and social skills that are crucial for forming lasting friendships.

PROGRAM DATES : June 14, 21, 28 and July 5, 12.

Activities Include:

  • Warm-up Exercises: Creative activities using colors and emotions to help kids express themselves.
  • Role-Playing Scenarios: Guided by our enthusiastic volunteers, children will act out different social situations to practice their responses.
