Currently the thinkSMARTⓇ program is enrolling for youth and young students ages 12-17. Participants must be at least 12 years old and in middle school or high school.
thinkSMARTⓇ enrolls new groups three times each year; once in August at the beginning of school, once in November, and once in March. We hope that the skills taught as a part of the program become habits and therefore want each child to have the opportunity to build the skills that they are learning while in school.
Program participants will complete 12, 90 minute weekly group classes over 3 months. For our groups with youth under the age of 18, parents must be able to attend weekly for the 12 classes and support youth through the week with the use of the skills. Parents must commit to completing the program. Participants must be willing to participate in class exercises and commit to practicing the skills at home with their parent.
Although we are currently only enrolling a group for students 12-17, we are open to starting group for young adults and adults if we have enough interest. So, please contact us at thinkSMART@ucla.edu!
