This popular group address communication and social skills for elementary and middle school children. The environment is fun and interactive providing activities to help develop conversation skills, listening, compliments and introductions with both current and new friends.  

In addition to participating in a social skills group for 60 minutes, group members will also participate in the CHALLENGE GROUP scheduled just before or after the Social Skills group. With many or all of the same youth from the social skills portion of the group, children learn to overcome fear and how to work as part of a team.
