AHA! offers an exceptional summer program for youth ages 14-18. The curriculum is action-oriented and stresses the importance and effectiveness of inclusive and experiential learning. Our very popular summer program focuses on social and emotional learning and the development of creative self-expression through a number of modalities including art, writing, theater games and movement as well as joyful team building. The curriculum develops teens’ confidence, emotional intelligence and social conscience, as well as their ability for authentic self-disclosure, compassionate communication, goal-setting, follow-through, diversity appreciation, and prejudice reduction. The summer program emphasizes FUN and includes beach days and other outdoor activities.
Summer Group participation is offered by donation
