Using the past success of our literacy based residencies, what we have learned through virtual learning thus far, and the training of our Education Director as a drama therapist and mental health counselor, we have created virtual classroom residencies that focus on community, self-esteem, stress management, and well-being.

The Gamm offers Social Emotional Learning Residencies to address the mental health of young students. These trauma-informed classes will help students battle the isolation felt from distance learning, while having fun and connecting with their classmates. Each week focuses on a different social emotional theme, incorporating self-awareness, social awareness, and relationship skills.

Our goal is to foster a sense of community and collaboration where all voices are welcomed and heard and students feel supported, while exploring each theme with creative and playful activities.

Our Transition Project aims to ease the transition into middle and high school for 6th and 9th graders. This is a critical time for students, often requiring multiple types of interventions to ensure academic and social success.


Our workshops specifically for these age groups help build community in the classroom, encourage collaboration and measured risk-taking among peers, and establish positive connections between students, and their teachers and schools.
