BOSS Social Skills Summer Group Enrolling Now

FUSE is pleased to offer our social skills development group again this summer to students ages 11-15.  We have a new name for the group, BOSS! BOSS (Building Our Social Skills) is designed for students who need help learning how to make friends, initiate/ maintain conversation, participate in group activities, compromise, and win/lose when playing games. Weekly lessons will use a combination of formal and informal activities in a small group atmosphere.  Sessions include leader-directed instruction with hands-on practical exercises that may include video modeling, skits, crafts, group games, the iPad, and a simple snack for skill reinforcement.  Unstructured conversation also allows students to practice skills without adult interaction but with instant feedback from the leader.


Sessions will be on Monday evenings from June 5 through July 24 from 6:30-8:00pm. Sessions will meet at the New Palestine Community Room in Town Hall, located at 42 E Main St, New Palestine (June 12 session will be relocated due to schedule conflict, location TBA). Registration fee is $80.00. Partial scholarships are available for those with financial need. 


You can register and pay online at this link, or send in this paper registration to pay by cash or check.


Space in this program is limited to 10 students. This program is not limited to any particular diagnosis, but students do need to have verbal communication skills.  Applications will be reviewed as they are received, and parents will be notified if their child has been enrolled no later than June 1.


FUSE reserves the right to select applications that will create the most effective grouping possible.  Late applications accepted only if space is still available. For questions, call Denise Arland at 317-462-9064 or email
