Social Village is a place where kids and teenagers (ages 8-18) and young adults (ages 18-23) can gather around common interests. We are a welcoming place where every Minecraft® expert, Lego® builder, Magic the Gathering® player, anime fan, film maker or Larping enthusiast can learn how to form meaningful friendships with similar- age peers. Indoor and outdoor activities are designed to foster the development of social skills, emotional regulation, teamwork and flexible thinking. Social Village helps our members build social thinking skills and executive function skills while learning to enjoy being part of a community.

NEW!! GUY TALK PROGRAM
Guy Talk session course is taught from a social learning perspective.
Our members are bright, likeable and endearing young people who struggle with forming and maintaining friendships with their same-age peers. They are eager to have genuine friendships while their parents are eager for them to be less socially isolated and expand their interests beyond video games and electronics. Social Village members typically present with a diagnosis of Asperger's Syndrome, ADHD, High-functioning autism or a learning disability. Some members have no formal diagnosis but struggle with social anxiety or inflexibility in social situations.
Our members have a great time, feel accepted and appreciated by other kids while developing skills that are essential for success in life.
