Friends Connect is an activity based social club for high functioning tweens and teens in Grades 6 to 12 with moderate developmental disabilities and moderate social challenges. The group provides participants with the opportunity to socialize, build friendships, explore the larger community and most importantly...have fun!
Friends Connect has a limited number of spaces. Priority for enrollment is given to returning participants who have met attendance requirements in the previous session. Once the program is full, applicants will be added to a waiting list.
Friends Connect is open to tweens and teens in grades 6-12 with moderate developmental disabilities and moderate social challenges.
Activities include arts & crafts, recreational and social games, cooking and more. Participants also go on exciting local field trips such as bowling, going out to eat or to the movies and to the arcade.
No registration fee. Participants will be responsible for cost of activities on field trips.
