Don't miss this exciting and fun-filled day for 4th and 5th grade boys. The goal of Compass for Boys is to enhance fourth and fifth graders’ social-emotional skills, including; self-awareness, managing emotions, problem solving, developing healthy relationship skills, becoming more empathic, and understanding power. 

This full-day workshop starts at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 2:30 p.m., and consists of small group break-out sessions which include mini-lessons, interactive experiences, team building challenges and action-packed games with the goal to provide boys with the opportunity to learn and share while having fun.
