Smart Moves: Emotional Wellness

SMART Moves: Emotional Wellness is a program offered at the Creston Club. SMART is a national Boys & Girls Club program concept that stands for Skills Mastery and Resistance Training. In this program, we focus on building social-emotional skills, self-control, emotional awareness and helping youth develop healthy decisions making.

Members get to express their emotions and their feelings through the program. They also get to do some activities they really enjoyed like Time Travels. Each member got to talk about their first day of school and how they felt. Most of the members felt different emotions (happy, sad, nervous, shy and scared). Through this program members enjoy talking about their emotions to each other. They also learn some new emotions they didn’t know about. It was a great experience hearing all our members talk about different types of emotions they felt in their first day of school and how they feel now.
