  • Foster Youth

  • Homeless Education

  • Health Services

 

Social Groups at Smith

Friendship Group (K - 5th): Friendship Group is an 8 -10 week program designed to enhance peer relationships among our students. Through group guided steps led by Social Work Interns, some of the skills formed through the group will be learning rules of personal space and communication feelings to positive peer-to peer relationships.

 

Girls Empowerment (5th Grade): The purpose of this group is to empower girls to feel confident, have a voice and develop positive self-esteem for healthy relationships. The Social Work Intern led group is made up of 14-16 students and meets once a week during lunch recess in the spring. Students are also given the opportunity to visit USC to encourage young girls to pursue higher education.

 

Peacemakers (3rd Grade): Students involved in this program take on the responsibility of implementing learned conflict resolution and problem solving skills out in the yard during the K - 2 recess. Students participate in 2 monthly supervision meetings led by Social Work Interns to talk about incidences out in the yard and identify positive ways to problem solve for improved peer relationships.
