First Steps into Adult Life

It can be very challenging to take your first steps into adult life.

If you are a young adult with a disability that makes it difficult or impossible to find work, you might try going to college. But if you also find it difficult or impossible to attend college right now, there’s probably very few options of things to do to fill your days. It’s not that you don’t want to do something productive, it is just not working out right now.

Your parents long for you to be fulfilled, to be happy, to be living the life you want to live. Sometimes it’s hard to even figure out what life you want to live.

So what are you doing with your time?  One thing you can do is join the Girls’ Social Group on December 5th and 14th for a time of learning and fun.

Another thing you can do is form a network of friends who will encourage you. In the past, young women who attend the Girls’ Social Group have made friends and followed each other on social media, kept in touch by text, did things together, and were really happy to see each other at every meeting of the group.

On December 5, we’ll meet again in Mason, 1981 Eden Road, from 6:30 to 8 PM. We’ll be talking about making those first steps into adult life. We’ll be planning some new activities for the new year. Come join us!IMG_2286

 

 

 

 

The 4 Parts of Girls Social Group Meetings

The girls’ group will meet on December 5 (Tuesday) and December 14 (Thursday). We meet in Mason, at 1918 Eden Road from 6:30 to 8:00.

Girls’ group meetings have four parts.

  1. Introduce ourselves and share snacks.
  2. Play a game that will make us laugh and talk together.
  3. Do an activity together that helps young women prepare for successful adulthood.
  4. Have at least a half hour of time to relax and talk.

A young woman you know (age 12 or over) might like to join us. Our meetings are facilitated by Lydia Schuck, PhD, a transition specialist. You can reach Lydia at 517-676-4621. Lydia’s daughter, Anna is a group member, and also hosts the meeting at her home.
