Welcome to the Mission Me Group registration page!
This group for boys ages 9-11 will focus on sportsmanship, positive communication, and relationship skill-building, with an emphasis on helping boys to both recognize and express their emotions. As a result, group members will become more confident and effective in their social circles and relationships.
Boys learn skills of perspective-taking, empathy, and conflict resolution while growing their positive and collaborative leadership qualities through practice both inside and outside of the group.
This group is appropriate for boys who need support in learning to:
“Read” themselves and their environment
Developing attention and focus
Growing positive self-esteem.
Join our waitlist! Dates for the next session are pending at this time.

Learn coping mechanisms and strategies to be able to communicate feelings with peers.
This group will be facilitated by Madison Valentine.
