An event every week that begins at 6:00pm on Friday, repeating until June 23, 2017
This program is a unique three hour interactive social skills experience. No other program like this exists. We have created an environment that allows our clients to have fun while learning age appropriate social skills that they can transfer to their every day activities. This program has been intentionally designed to promote social and emotional growth in a nurturing setting. Specific activities have been set up to promote and encourage personal space, social reciprocity, tone of voice and the nuances of creating lasting friendships.
Come join the company of like-minded people every Friday and/or Saturday evening from 6pm until 9pm. Enjoy pizza and pop (dinner’s on us). You can choose from a variety of activities such as, board games, creating art projects, interactive Xbox, puzzles, etc. We also go on field trips in downtown Northville.

The key to this program are the mentors who interact with each client during this time. These young people attend intensive on-going training to ensure that they are “Living & Learning” along with our clients.
