Scottsdale, AZ: MASK (Mothers Awareness on School-age Kids) is building social and emotional skills in children during the month of June at the MASK Summer Camps.

Last week, twelve kindergarten – third grade students were engaged, educated and empowered on how to make safe, healthy choices. Students attending the camp were taught social-emotional learning lessons on the topics of Peer Pressure, Cyber-Safety, RX 4 Prevention and Self Esteem. The lessons were conducted by a MASK  i.m.(POWER) mentor. MASK i.m.(POWER) Mentors are Arizona State University students whom have been trained and certified to facilitate lessons based on three categories; Relational Development, Digital Solutions and Health and Wellness. Following each lesson, the campers engaged in fun interactive reinforcement activities.  Please click on the link below to view a video highlighting the fun and learning from last week.
