The Friendship Club Autism Social is an event that takes place almost every month at St. Anastasia Activity Center in Troy, Michigan. This is an opportunity for teens and young adults within the autism spectrum, including individuals with Autism, Asperger Syndrome & Pervasive Development Disorders, to get together & have fun! We have all types of activities including: -Video Games, Ping Pong, Basketball, Floor Hockey, Board Games, Corn Hole (Bring your own board games if you like.) - DANCING! Our DJ plays great music starting at 9:30pm! - TALENT SHOW - Show off your singing, art work, poems, jokes, guitar/piano playing, etc...(1-3 minutes per performance) - Pizza & Refreshments are provided. The Friendship Club is run by volunteers. Parents, siblings (over 13 years old), friends are welcome to come. Attendees need to be 13 years or older as this event is geared for teens/young adults.Ages range from 13 yrs, to 30's.
This is NOT a "facilitated" event and volunteers/organizers cannot be responsible for attendees.
We encourage parents/care providers to stay at the events at all times at every event because volunteers are not able to provide care or monitor behavior.
*** First time attendees may not be dropped off and left at the event without a parent/caregiver.
Minors (under 18) must be accompanied by an adult.
***Please bring GYM SHOES with WHITE BOTTOMS to play basketball or hockey in the gym. (Do not wear black shoes because they will mark up the gym floor.)
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!We appreciate your help during our socials! If you can help us set up, serve pizza, monitor the gym during basketball or hockey, monitor the video game rooms... or help clean up afterward, please talk with the coordinators at the social. *We especially need some "guys" to stay a little longer at the end of the night between 11:00-11:30pm and help us move tables/chairs - Please stay and help us out if you can!
