Description

Journeys is a membership-based weekend social program for young adults ages 18 and older with Autism spectrum disorder or other cognitive disorders. The program is designed to help individuals meet new people and make lasting friendships in the community, gain self-confidence and reduce anxiety, and become more independent.

  • Bowling
  • Community events (e.g. sporting)
  • Lunch Club
  • Indoor/outdoor activities
  • Trips to museums
  • Nature walks

To enjoy a meaningful experience as a Journeys member, individuals should be able to:

  • Stay with a group in the community without needing reminders
