mASCot’s Teen+ Club launched in Sept 2017 and has swiftly become a roaring success!
Sessions run every Thursday evening during term time.
This is a space where our young people can spend time with others of a similar age and be supported to make social connections, in a safe, accepting, understanding space where they can be free from the pressures and judgements of the neurotypical environment and can really be themselves.
Every week you will find:
-supported ‘getting to know you’ conversations and activities
-arts and crafts activities
-music and a regular disco slot!
There are 3 breakout areas for calmer activities or chilling out, there’s also a kitchen with snacks and hot drinks - a nice area for parents and carers to hang out and chat with each other. All activities are optional.
We believe that our young people should be shaping what happens here, so we gather together at the end of every session to discuss ideas for future activities.
We have just started up a Club Buddy scheme with a view that older members can help to support newer recruits. We have an awesome and dedicated team of volunteers who help us to run activities.
Some weeks we also invite youth practitioners along to lead a range of arts and social schemes for our Club members.
Teen+ Club is open to mASCot members only. It’s not a drop off club, so teens/young adults need to be accompanied by a parent/carer or responsible adult. If you are a mASCot member and want to sign up for the Teens+ Club then let us know on the mASCot private Facebook group and we will join you up.
You are welcome to turn up to the first session for free to get a taste of what's going on and see whether it suits your young person.
