PROGRAMS & OUTREACH FOR YOUTH

Nurture the development of healthy social and emotional skills which are linked to greater lifetime wellbeing and to academic and workplace success. Through our partnerships with Coronado’s public and private schools, and community agencies, we help youth build skills that are needed to mitigate risks and be successful in life through outreach activities, targeted wellness activities, and special events like The Drug Store, Suicide Awareness, and Mental Health Awareness. 

  • Elementary School (Turtle Time):  5-6 week program given to ALL Tk/Kinder classes in Coronado that increases impulse control, emotion management, and healthy decision making.
  • Middle School (Power of Pause/T3):  A 2x a month mindfulness and wellness activity delivered over KCMS to ALL middle school students during their class time. Lunch outreach supports nearly 70 middle school students who want to dig deeper into the activity.
  • High School (Game Club):  Disguised as a game club, the program helps students practice social skills and community building during lunch.  Approximately 50 HS students attend weekly which is significantly more than we expected.
