Junior-Coach-in-Training Program for Highschool Teens & Young Adults
If your highschool teen or young adult would benefit from social mentoring, building confidence, AND job/social coaching together, this is the program! Your teen or young adult will join one of the in-person social groups for younger kids and tweens as a junior coach-in-training. Not only will your teen or young adult indirectly absorb the social coaching and skills provided to the entire group, but they will also be mentored on job skills by a very understanding boss. Social groups take place at my home, with both an indoor and outdoor play space.
This program supports teens and young adults in building social confidence, enhancing communication skills and improving perspective taking, conflict resolution, problem-solving, and work-life strategies. Teens and young adults must demonstrate interest in the program, the ability to take direction, and follow safety rules.
Social skills that are practiced and addressed through in-the-moment facilitation include: independent functioning skills, interaction skills, team skills, social communication skills, socio-emotional skills (e.g. identifying, and expressing feelings, moods, and emotions), promoting self-regulation and developing community social skills and basic job skills. My approach to social learning includes a blend of cognitive behavioral coaching, positive psychology and collaborative problem solving, but more than that, it’s just plain fun.
A teen or young adult chooses one or more of our programs and registers as a JCIT. Their work role is to interact with the children, playing games or leading activities. This can be an on-going weekly group, vacation program, or summer program. Tuition includes a stipend paid back to your teen or young adult for participating in a leadership role.
Weekly program (meets 4x month) from 4:30-5:45 PM – Tuition $320 cash or $340 check/Venmo ($20 week stipend)
School vacation or summer programs from 9:00-Noon – Tuition $580 cash or $605 check/Venmo $180 week stipend
