CanLearn Friends and Teen Talk School Groups – We are back in person!
The CanLearn Friends program is now back in schools! The Friends and Teen Talk program is FREE for students in grades 4 -6 (Friends) and 7-8 (Teen Talk), focusing on developing positive relationships and coping skills.
Our facilitators work with a group of up to twelve students selected by your school team. Students will learn and practice skills related to:
- recognizing and managing emotions
- coping skills
- communication and problem solving
- conversation skills
- making and keeping friends
- learning to think in positive and helpful ways
- handling bullying and peer conflict
- calming techniques and mindfulness
Through meaningful discussions, role-playing, games and activities, children and youth will learn strategies and skills in a fun and interactive way. We will provide many ideas and suggestions on how to generalize and practice the skills outside the sessions for parents and teachers.
The Friends program is offered twice weekly for 1.5 hours per session over eight weeks. The Teen Talk program is offered once weekly for one hour per session over eight weeks.
Groups run from:
- October to December
- January to March
- April to June
