Our teen and adult groups give participants the chance to explore who they are, gain independence and make social connections.

In the Outings Group, young adults plan and go on group trips and participate in recreational activities throughout the metro Boston area. Together as a group, members choose their excursions and activities and are challenged to go on novel outings.  Activities are tailored to the interests of the group.  Examples could include: bowling, watching a university sporting event, hiking, visiting a comic store, or having dinner in Harvard Square. The program provides shared experiences so that participants can develop social connections while increasing self-awareness.  Practicing stress management skills in the community is another component of this program. Participants will not only expand skills for connecting with others and for setting up activities but will also explore ways to continue their relationships outside of the scheduled outings.
