Young Adult Social Club (Association of the Coolest People Ever)

The Arc's Young Adult Social Club, better known as The Association of the Coolest People Ever, is a group for individuals with developmental disabilities that are in the transition period of their lives. This group will use fun activities to promote social interaction and develop social skills, providing a network for individuals transitioning from high school to more independent, adult lives. The group meets once or twice a month to do various social activities they think will be a fun time. It may be a bowling outing, going to a movie, playing Nintendo Wii, or just grabbing a meal and chatting. As members become comfortable with each other, they work together to plan the group meetings. These activities provide a good opportunity to make new friends and develop social skills, while also teaching the members how to compromise and work together.
