Club Connections Programming:
About: Club Connections is a social competencies and life skills group for High Schoolers through age 25 years. 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: Club Connections will meet every Second Saturday running August through May.
Students in High School will meet from 10:30am-12:30pm.
Students Beyond High School will meet from 1:00-3:00pm
There will be 2-3 additional Club Connection events throughout the year.
Cost: The registration fee for Club Connections is $560 per year or $56 per month. If payment is in full, cost is $500. Deposit of $100 is required if not paid in full.
