The primary goal of SNAP® is to keep children in school and out of trouble. The gender-sensitive SNAP® Boys and SNAP® Girls programs are designed for children ages 6-11 who are engaging in aggressive, anti-social behaviour and/or have come into contact with authority figures at school or in the community. Experienced and highly trained staff work with each family to assess challenges and problems and develop an action plan. Children and families may participate in the following components, with the goal of promoting pro-social behaviour and reducing the chances of future conflict with family, peers and authority figures:

  • SNAP Boys and Girls groups
  • SNAP Caregivers Group
  • Homework/Tutoring club
  • Individual child counselling/Mentoring and community connections
  • School Advocacy/Teacher Support
  • SNAP Family Counselling

SNAP® was developed by Child Development Institute, an accredited children’s mental health organization in Toronto in 1985 as an intervention program for boys under 12 in conflict with the law. Since then, the program has grown into an internationally recognized model for teaching children and their parent’s effective emotion-regulation, self-control and problem-solving.
