  3. Social Interaction: All PEERS Clubs aim to nurture meaningful relationships and foster social skills, empowering individuals to navigate social interactions and build lasting friendships.
  4. Self-Management: PEERS Clubs support participants in coping with social anxiety and stress, fostering self-esteem and self-confidence, which indirectly contribute to improved self-management abilities.
  5. Learning: PEERS for Success Clubs provide participants with valuable tools for career success, including critical thinking, problem-solving, and digital literacy, enhancing their learning capabilities.
  6. Self-Care: While not directly targeted, improved social skills and self-confidence gained through PEERS Clubs can indirectly influence individuals’ ability to manage their self-care tasks.
