CSBY teaches children social-cultural skills in 10 small-group sessions. It also includes fun activities that children and their families can do at home and in their communities.
Materials for Group Leaders
Group leaders are provided with fully scripted lesson plans with detailed instructions for activities designed to achieve specific goals, such as discovering and building on strengths, acting respectfully, and managing emotions.
Designed for Professionals
The CSBY program is designed to be implemented by members of helping professions, such as psychologists, counselors, marriage and family therapists, and social workers, as well as paraprofessionals who provide mentoring services and support to Black children and families.
Groups can meet in a variety of settings, such as after-school programs, community centers, mentoring groups, and churches.
