The purpose of this summer program is to teach and apply social and life skills that are used in everyday life, and to bring individual success to each participant that produces personal growth for 5th grade and up.
**Why are social skills so important?
Social skills are important because they are the foundation for having positive relationships with others with your partners, friends, and for your career. Social skills allow you to connect with other people on a level that is important in life so you can have more in-depth relationships with others.
**What are Life Skills and WHY are they important?
In everyday life, the development of life skills helps students to: Find new ways of thinking and problem solving. Recognize the impact of their actions and teaches them to take responsibility for what they do rather than blame others. Build confidence both in spoken skills and for group collaboration and cooperation.

The mission of the P.R.O.V.E. Program at Breakthroughs of North Florida is to educate and support our special needs students as they develop and learn to be lifelong learners, by providing a curriculum that fosters independence where academics and hands on activities will lead to personal excellence. In working together in a safe and open learning environment that encourages involvement and independent responsibilities and personal growth the students will be able to reach for the stars.
We help empower our students to reach their full educational and personal potential, while nurturing their self confidence so that they will be productive participating members of their community.
We provide an open learning environment that focuses on individual needs that will allow the child to experience success in learning and in life.
Our Objectives Are:
- To educate and build upon daily living experiences while promoting responsibilities
- To prepare our students for independent participation in life skills and life events
- To provide hands on opportunities to learn important skills and increase self confidence
- To provide activities both in the classroom and community to enrich the child’s quality of life.
