Friends & Pals Teen Club (age 13 – 21) provides an opportunity for friendship, conversation, and FUN!  Teenagers need more independent social skills once they leave school for college or the job market. Our group gives teens on the autism spectrum an opportunity to utilize their social skills and practice them in a comfortable environment.

The club will be meeting on a monthly basis with our facilitator, Warren Levy.  Our Teen Club Outings will continue in addition to the monthly club gatherings.
