Launched in 2011, Familia y Mundo is an after-school therapeutic program for elementary school students.
The program is housed at Ranchos Elementary School, although participating students are drawn from several elementary schools in the Taos area.
Students receive group therapy (daily) and individual therapy (weekly or as needed).
In addition, the youth can practice social and emotional skills in an emotionally safe environment through a variety of activities, such as:
- Participate in arts and crafts
- Receive help with homework
- Engage in physical fitness on the playground
- Practice martial arts at Defendu Academy
