I have to say I wish that this program was still around for the teens in my area, but it was stopped the program was called teens getting into Fridays It was based around building independence and social interactions. The main objective was for us to learn how to plan.
One week we would plan an event and the next week we would actually do what we had actually planned. We were learning organizational skills which we could put into practice in other areas of life without actually realizing it.
