Peer Mentors and High School Mentors make our program unique!
All of our social skills friendship clubs include peer mentors who are similarly aged students who provide a strong example of pro-social behavior. We utilize our peer mentors to help more naturally facilitate conversation within the groups as well as to provide respectful feedback. The kids don’t know who is a peer mentor and who is not — everyone participates in the same way!

High School Mentors
Similarly, our groups include high school mentors. High school mentors also participate in activities alongside the children, provide a strong model of pro-social behavior, help instructors facilitate social interaction between the participants, and assist with logistics, setup, and cleanup. We also utilize our high school mentors to help more naturally facilitate conversation within the groups as well as to provide respectful feedback to participants.
