What is transition to adulthood?

It’s just what you might think.  Every child makes a transition to becoming an adult.  This journey to adulthood is different for every person.  We all faced obstacles in reaching adult life goals, but kids with disabilities may face more barriers than others.  Eden Transition Alliance is run by some folks who recognize that youth with disabilities might need to make friends in a setting other than the school building, and might want to talk to adults who know what extra resources and supports are available to them.  We define the time of transition to adulthood as ages 14 to 24 for our girls groups, but there are no hard and fast numbers.  Reaching age 29 or 39 or 49 is no guarantee of a smooth journey, and everyone faces bumps along the way.  Our goal is to support youth as they make the journey to adulthood.

Girls Social Groups meet on the the second Monday evening of every month in Mason, and the 2nd and 4th Tuesday evenings in Lansing.  Check our Event Calendar for more information.  And follow our site for updates (below right).

Girls Groups Growing!

The girls’ groups are growing, and the fun is growing, too!

Girls’ Social Groups are for young women ages 12 and up.  We welcome all young women who want to make new friends and we are especially recruiting young women with social challenges.  These challenges might be associated with autism or other disabilities, and the groups are a fun way to practice social skills in a warm and friendly environment.

In Mason, the group meets on the second Monday evening of every month.  We meet at 1981 Eden Road, Mason, from 6:30 to 8.

In Lansing, the groups meet on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month.   We meet from 6 to 7:30 PM at Foster Community Center, 200 N. Foster, just north of Michigan Avenue.
