Emerge is hoping to start a brand new social skills program in the Spring, 2022 called PEERs. The Program for the Education and Enrichment of Relational Skills (PEERS®) is a structured social skills curriculum designed to help teens make and keep friends and improve their reputation among peers. This program is designed for socially motivated teens, ages 13-17 who want to work on the skills needed to help them make and keep friends. There are two parts to this group: a teen group and a parent group. Each week, teens meet together to learn key social skills and receive structured homework to practice outside of group sessions. Parents also have a group each week, where they learn the skills necessary to coach their children and support the skills they are learning in group. The groups are 90 minutes in length. If you have an interest in this group, please respond to this survey and answer the following questions:
