My Place

We are currently enrolling for all Social Skills and Community Integration groups which will start the first week of September. All groups run from 4pm - 6pm on the group's designated day. Please call or email for more information and to reserve your spot.

My Place is a 6-month after-school social skills and community integration program that is intended for teens, ages 13 to 18, who need support with social skills. Various social skills concepts are addressed through a combination of community social outings, informational workshops, vocational skills activities, volunteer opportunities, and special projects. My Place provides an opportunity to foster independence and positively impact the way our adolescent clients transition into adulthood. My Place sessions are held once a week for 2 hours. Monthly community outings to restaurants, movies, arcades, teen centers, and more are held as a means to practice and generalize newly acquired skills. Parents are also provided with educational opportunities that provide tools to assist in preparing their teens for a more independent and rewarding life as an adult. Weekly 15 minute parent gatherings following the session, as well as bi-monthly parent meetings, are held to support families.

During the course of My Place, our objective is to provide the teen participants and families with the following:

  • An enjoyable and educational social setting where friendships can be nurtured.
  • Increased awareness and knowledge related to safety issues for independence.
  • Improved ability to initiate, interpret and respond to the verbal and non-verbal social cues used in various settings in the community to avoid unexpected behaviors.
  • Improved knowledge about relationships, personal hygiene, self-care skills and more.
  • Increased community involvement through volunteer or vocational opportunities.
  • Increased ability to identify and develop shared interests and hobbies.
  • Improved ability to problem solve complex social situations impacting teens (i.e. prom, bullying, Facebook, etc.).
  • Improved self-awareness and ability to advocate for themselves.
