Self-Esteem & Self-Confidence in School Age Children

We will look at a variety of team building ideas and activities that foster friendship and self-confidence in your school aged program. We will discuss and identify some of the challenges that we see in our programs when it comes to children being left out or struggling to connect with others. Together, we can provide bridges for the children in the program to strengthen connections with peers and themselves.


Join us 9:00-9:30AM for light refreshments!
