PEERS® Boot Camp: Conversation Skills
Youth are invited to join a small group of their peers, learn and practice new skills, and have fun in a relaxed setting. This service is intended for youth who have basic conversational skills and want to have greater success making and keeping friends. Through instruction, demonstrations and role-play, participants will work on targeted skills such as: Trading Information, Maintaining Conversations, Entering and Exiting Conversations and Appropriate use of Humour. Lunch will be provided. A screening will be completed prior to the start date to establish that youth are a fit for the program.
