CONNECTED Program Pillars

Support & Belonging

It’s important to know others who have gone through similar experiences and share similar feelings. There is nothing like a friend who just “GETS” you! CONNECTED provides opportunities to strengthen old friendships and make new ones in a safe environment where we foster growth through intentional social and community activities.

Types of activities: get-to-know you games, all about me projects, game nights, fireside chats

Health & Wellness

A healthy mind and body are an important part of daily life. Physical activity, healthy habits and nutrition, creative expression, rest and rejuvenation, mindfulness and meditation, time for talking, and an emphasis on gratitude to help with focus and emotional regulation are all important aspects of CONNECTED programs.

Types of activities: yoga, meditation, mind/body movement, relaxation, journaling, nutrition, expressive arts

Exploration & Discovery

Sharing new experiences with others makes them even more special. CONNECTED fosters creativity, self-expression, exercising imagination, gaining new skills, and challenging ourselves in new and exciting ways.

Types of activities: arts & crafts, storytelling, theater games, virtual field trips, STEM, invention challenges, baking & cooking
