Youth Group Program

YG 1 (1)

The concept behind Youth Group is provide a meeting place for young people with Asperger’s and to provide the ‘next step’ for our young people after participating in the Social Skills Training.  The program is based on the skills outlined in Social Skills Programs.

Youth Group is  held every third Friday evening 6.30 – 8.00pm.  The group consists of young people aged between 12 and 20 years old. The program is delivered by 2 Facilitators.

This program has provided a relaxed environment for our young people be social, find friendships, relate to others, informally develop social skills and essentially connect with others of their age group. The sessions are run informally. Most meetings are held at The Gold Foundation Centre, with some excursions.

YG 1 (2) These excursions are nominated and voted by the individual groups to make their specific Youth Group unique. The Gold Foundation purchased 10 ipads which are used for the Youth Group for movie making and animation projects. This has been a highly successful project and has clearly met the needs of the youths and their families.
