This page describes all of Pivot Point GROUP ACTIVITIES. You’ll find GROUP SERVICES, which are online or in-person gatherings of our clients or their family members, as well as GROUP EVENTS, which are one-time-only events hosted for clients, family members, community partners, etc.
We currently host three different STYLES of GROUP SERVICES:
1. H.A.N.G. ~ Helping Adolescents / Adults Network and Grow
Our H.A.N.G. style groups are designed to be fun social environments where teen and adult peers with Diverse Abilities get together (in-person or online) to network with others who share common interests. Each session of any “H.A.N.G.” styled group includes structured greeting activities, group activity planning, gentle in-the-moment coaching, and feedback on observed and emerging social skill dynamics. Our H.A.N.G. style groups are themed around ages and interests.
2. Developing… Skills ~ Interactive groups designed to teach a specific topic or skill
Our “Developing… skills” style groups follow a set curriculum, and inspire participants to work together towards acquiring skills needed to pursue their personal growth and success. This group style includes a very wide range of topics and themes, with new topics being added regularly to reflect new interests, needs and inspirations. “Developing… skills” style groups are well suited to children, youth, adults, caregivers and community members who are ready to jump in and learn some new skills!
3. Day Camps ~ 1 or 2 Week-long groups built for Summer, Winter and Spring Break learning and fun!
Our “Day Camp” style groups typically run for a full week, Monday through Friday. Common session times include morning sessions only, afternoon sessions only, or full-day sessions. Many of our “Day Camp” style groups are available either online or in-person, so please carefully note this in the groups listed on our Calendar page. While each “Day Camp” style group is themed, each group incorporates social skill development and friendship building while inspiring a Growth Mindset and increased self-awareness / self-responsibility in a safe, respectful, fun peer environment.
