Club Connections 2018-2019 Programming:
About: Club Connections is a social competencies and life skills group for teens and young adults ages 16-24. We partner with Center for Independent Futures, which plays a key role in our curriculum. During Club Connections students participate in interactive lessons and activities such as:
- Learning how to take public transportation
- Preparing a simple meal
- Building friendships and relationships
- Shopping at the grocery store
- Health and wellness
- Independent living skills
- Personal safety and emergency preparedness
- Volunteering and community engagement
- Job Exploration
After each session there are homework assignments that help students practice the skills that were taught. In order to gain the most out of the program, it is important that both students and parents are actively involved in Club Connections.
When: Every 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month from 3-5pm, however the 4th Saturday may change to a different date, depending on the lesson. The sessions take place from September through June.
Cost: The registrations fee for Club Connections is $500 per year or $50 per month. If payment is in full, cost is $450.
The Team: Kaely Shilakes, Lucia Serio, Melissa Holtzen, and typical teen volunteers
