Special Needs Programs for Tweens and Teens
SATURDAY NIGHT CHILLIN’
Does your high schooler need support negotiating the teen social scene? One Saturday night a month, come hang out with other teens, enjoy a pizza dinner and a fun recreational activity while gaining the skills needed to be part of a social peer group. Following dinner, the group will venture out for activities such as bowling, ice skating or the movies. The group as a whole will help decide upon and plan the next month’s activity. Transportation will be provided from the RJCC to the scheduled event and back to the RJCC. <Details>
