Compass for Boys* (*Compass for Boys curriculum by Navigate Adolescence)
Compass for Boys provides a great way for 4th– and 5th-grade boys to enhance their social and emotional skills, including: self-awareness, managing emotions, problem solving, developing healthy relationship skills, becoming more empathic, and understanding personal power.
This full-day workshop consists of small group break-out sessions (of 8-12 boys), which include mini lessons, interactive experiences, team-building, and active games with the goal to provide boys with the opportunity to learn and share while having fun. Lunch, a backpack and ready-to-use take-aways will all be included in this exciting day.
The Compass for Boys: Finding Your Way curriculum was created specifically for boys by Navigate Adolescence (formerly named HGNA) and is different for the 4th graders than for the 5th graders. To help the girls develop their inner compass and apply what they learn at the workshop to their everyday lives, the Compass Curriculum is divided into four segments, corresponding with the directions on a compass.
This program is offered by TriCity Family Services and the Geneva Coalition for Youth, with the support of Geneva CUSD 304. ALL boys in 4th and 5th grades from public, private, and homeschools are welcome at Compass for Boys!
