A Socioemotional Foundation

Our fall events begin by focusing on the individual and then radiating outwards to explore the increasingly larger spheres of influence we exist in. For teen attendees, these events build trust in the group and help to establish a sense of both individuality and interconnectedness. For teen leaders, these events familiarize them with planning and organizing Real Talk events as a team, developing their own activities, and leading and managing crowds. And for facilitators, these events draw out valuable information about teens’ personalities, backgrounds, and group dynamics.
