Due to the upheaval of the pandemic for our youth, their levels of anxiety, stress, and depression have significantly increased. We have invested in the Second Step program – a curriculum specifically designed to meet the ever-evolving needs of young people. For many of the kids we serve, our staff team is their primary and most consistent reference for social-emotional learning and positive role-modeling. We are offering this program daily to all members to help them learn to manage emotions, achieve personal goals, and make responsible decisions. Through our Second Step program, young people develop healthy identities, learn to manage emotions, achieve personal and collective goals, establish and maintain supportive relationships, and make responsible and caring decisions.
