Treehouse

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. The 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. 

The third grade boys at Buena Vista Horace Mann K-8 named themselves the "Meditating Gamers" and learned about mindfulness through activities such as meditation, yoga and glitter calm jars (as seen in the photo to the right). Their credo: "Be kind, be curious, be thoughtful, be responsible."
