Description

Higher Ground’s Youth Development program at Wakefield provides behavioral health and social-emotional learning for at-risk youth. Monday through Friday from 2-6:30 pm, students participate in archery, art, basketball, boxing, coding, dance, digital design, drumline, jiu-jitsu, judo, music, outside sports, and robotics--all at no cost to the family. Based on research by Dr. Adele Diamond and Dr. Angela Duckworth, our student activities are used as a delivery mechanism to teach communication, creative problem solving, emotion management, mindfulness, self-control, and Grit in an environment of social inclusion and belonging.
