Treehouse

The mission of Jamestown Treehouse program is to serve as a resource of support and shared experiences to empower young people as they aquire life skills and successfully transition into adulthood.

Jamestown’s Treehouse program offers weekly age- and gender-specific social support groups to youth, grades 3 through 12. We work with school social workers, counselors and teachers to identify youth who will benefit from extra behavioral, social and/or emotional support. Groups offer a safe place to share, build meaningful relationships, learn social skills and build emotional support between peers by re-creating a family style dinner, and a guided conversation facilitated by a trusted and trained adult. 

Our Treehouse program works through topics such as relationship building, family, masculinity, confidence, gender, empowerment, emotional awareness, accountability, friendship, relationships, stress management, safety, self-esteem, sex, building trust, love, confidence, and self care. 

Treehouse currently consists of nine groups operating out of Cesar Chavez ES, Buena Vista Horace Mann K-8 and James Lick MS. Groups are split by grade and gender, with no more than 10 youth in each group.
