HV Connecting is a “relationship building” course designed to build social opportunities for young adults in the Hudson Valley, for both friendship and romance. The participants will experience social training in a safe, professional and natural environment, with like-minded peers. Individuals will be assigned their own personal “social coach” to continue meeting and practicing goals outside the teaching setting. Under the leadership of workshop facilitators and trained social coaches, individuals will complete periodic benchmarks. This is an integrity-based program allowing enrollees to examine and identify positive attributes and skills to improve personal social outcomes.
