The objective of the MY Friendship Club program is to teach your child through games, play and modeling how to develop the essential social skills needed to be socially successful at school, in family situations, and out and about in the community. It’s important to remember that kids learn at their own pace. Some kids will take the skills learned and run with them, while others might take some more time.
MY Friendship Club meets at Vinton Elementary school from 12:30pm—1:30pm and has separate days for elementary and middle school youth. Group members who are participating in summer school can eat lunch with Kelly from 12:00-12:30 pm (grab and go lunch provided by the Mansfield Board of Education Food Services). Members not participating in summer school are encouraged to join us for group at 12:30 pm . If you’re interested in having your child participate in MY Friendship Club, please complete the registration form and the attached Social Skills Checklist below. All completed enrollment forms can be submitted to Kelly McKenney at Mansfield Youth Services via email: McKenneyKL@mansfieldct.org
