Leadership & Character Development…
-A journey through personal discovery and connecting with others.
A Leadership & Character Development Group designed to provide a safe and supportive environment in which group members gain support from their peers and group facilitators in promoting feelings of empowerment and self-confidence, as well as learning healthy ways to cope with the stresses and pressures of entering adolescence. Group sessions will address many issues specifically related to early adolescence. Sessions are designed to build on each other while creating a sense of safety and comfort in the group, and developing a sense of empowerment and confidence in the each students’ own abilities.
A culminating activity will take place in June to celebrate academic and social achievements of all students and the 7th graders will complete their Rite of Passage Phase at Oakwood Avenue School.
