In today's fast-paced world, the ways we interact are constantly evolving. While new technology has enhanced our lives in many ways, the art of face-to-face interaction remains crucial to success. The scientific journal Child Development released a comprehensive analysis of 33 studies which found that ”…teaching kids social and emotional skills leads to an average 11 percentile-point gain in their academic performance over six months compared to students who didn't receive the same instruction.” The study also found that these skills help students ranging from kindergarten through high school form bonds with their teachers and peers.
socialsklz:-) was founded by Faye Rogaski to equip children and young adults with the vital tools needed to succeed on the playground, in the classroom and ultimately at the workplace. Through a series of fun, interactive workshops, socialsklz:-) teaches lessons including greetings and introductions, making a good first impression, starting conversations, patience and thoughtfulness, self-control, respect and consideration dining and phone skills, as well as safe Internet interaction for the older age set. The skills mastered are not only empowering, but build confidence and self-esteem paving way to a more fruitful life. The program has been widely touted and extensively featured in the media.
Faye and socialsklz:-) instructors have volunteered and worked with organizations including: the YMCA, Girl Scouts of America, Big Brothers Big Sisters, New York Junior League, Children’s Museum of Manhattan, Macy’s, Woman’s Club of White Plains as well as NYC public and private schools.
