Adult Social Recreational Group

Join NYFS for a Social Group geared specifically for adults ages 18-35 with social challenges who live in Western Connecticut.

The group is designed to connect individuals who are seeing friendships and social opportunities within their community. Group meets twice a month on every other Tuesday from 6:00 - 8:00 pm*. In six months you will:

  • Attend 12 groups.
  • Receive coaching and feedback from mentors.
  • Plan 1-2 social group events.
  • Practice social skills in a supportive environment, form friendships and experience a variety of community based activities.

The group is facilitated by two NYFS mentors who serve as "social role models," making sure the group is cohesive and relationships are established and developed. The mentors also coach group members to plan and implement their own social group events.

Open Enrollment!

The cost for the 6 month session (12 groups) is $25.00 and does not include the cost of activities.*
