Group Activities

This page describes all of Pivot Point GROUP ACTIVITIES. You’ll find GROUP SERVICES, which are online or in-person gatherings of our clients or their family members, as well as GROUP EVENTS, which are one-time-only events hosted for clients, family members, community partners, etc.


We currently host three different STYLES of GROUP SERVICES:

1.  H.A.N.G. ~ Helping Adolescents / Adults Network and Grow

Our H.A.N.G. style groups are designed to be fun social environments where teen and adult peers with Diverse Abilities get together (in-person or online) to network with others who share common interests.  The group meets around a two-part rotating schedule where one session is a social, fun and shorter “planning” session devoted to planning the upcoming gathering or outing, and the next session is the planned activity itself. H.A.N.G. groups may meet for their two-part cycle of Planning-then-Activity once or twice each week or each month as desired by the group. Like most of our GROUP SERVICES, H.A.N.G. style groups are typically themed around ages and interests. 

2.  Developing… Skills ~ Interactive groups designed to teach a specific topic or skill 

Our “Developing… skills” style groups inspire participants to identify gaps in their abilities and knowledge, then we work together towards acquiring skills needed for their pursuit of personal growth and success. This group style includes a very wide range of topics and themes, with new content being added regularly to reflect new interests, needs and inspirations.  “Developing… skills” style groups are well suited to children, youth, adults, caregivers and community members who are ready to jump in and learn some new skills! 

3.  Day Camps ~ Week-long groups built for Summer, Winter and Spring Break learning and fun! 

Our “Day Camp” style groups typically run for a full week, Monday through Friday. Common session times include  morning sessions only, afternoon sessions only, or full-day sessions.  Many of our “Day Camp” style groups are available either online or in-person, so please carefully note this in the groups listed on our Calendar page. While each “Day Camp” style group is themed, each group incorporates social skill development and friendship building while inspiring a Growth Mindset and increased self-awareness / self-responsibility in a safe, respecful, fun peer environment.
