Taking Part in Social Activities



Feeling good about yourself

Taking part in social activities is an important part of everyone’s life. Belonging to clubs, teams or special-interest groups can help you learn and grow in many ways. Here are some of the ways socialization can help you;

  • You can learn how to function in a group. It’s a chance to learn ways to solve problems and work towards goals.
  • You can learn new skills and hobbies you may use the rest of your life.
  • You can make new friends who have the same interests as you.
  • You can learn leadership skills.
  • You can learn more about yourself and your abilities.
  • You’re life will be fuller if you get involved that if you let yourself become isolated.

DISCUSS/ FOR EXAMPLE;

  • You’ve moved to a new city or apartment complex, how might getting involved in social activities help you?
  • Barb is interested in learning about computers. How might social activities help her?
  • What social activities have you enjoyed that you feel have helped you grow in some way?
