Real World Connections is a unique program for young adults who need a little extra help in figuring out the new social world and unspoken rules that come with being a teenager… with a group of like-minded individuals. This results in amazing opportunities for not only learning from positive adult role models, but rich peer-to-peer learning and a whole lot of fun!
The curriculum for this program is a unique one developed and created by the iCan House specifically for this teenage population and targets nine core concepts that we believe to be most essential.
- Understanding Relationships
- Real World Life Skills
- Perspective Taking
- Emotional Understanding & Empathy
- Communication Skills
- Social Recreation
- Executive Functioning Skills
- Forming & Maintaining a Positive Outlook
Each week the Real World Connections groups meet with a trained iCan House facilitator to talk about issues that are happening in their own lives, in addition to working proactively to learn new strategies for challenging real life scenarios that they face frequently.
This group meets weekly in all-male and all-female groups, but also have planned co-ed social activities each month.
