Islands of Brilliance presents The Fellowship

July 10 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

An opportunity for neurodiverse teens and young adults (aged 16 through early 30s) to gather for creative arts-based activities and guided discussions.

This Program is a Good Fit For: Autistic and Neurodiverse individuals aged 16 through early 30s who are interested in being part of a social community and are looking to gain confidence in navigating skills for independence.

Autistic participants 16+ will gather at partner library locations once a week for one hour. In each session, students will work on special interest (SpIn) driven creative projects on iPads and laptops. They will also have the opportunity to connect socially with peers and grow together by building a community of mutual support. Sessions will be guided by experienced artists and educators who have embarked on specialized training to become Brilliant Fellows. The Fellowship employs a research-based curriculum designed to empower youth and young adults to gain resiliency skills, advocacy skills, identity, and positive social connections. Topic-based discussions will encourage participants to reflect on their unique life experiences in a supportive network of peers.

Wednesdays from 5:30-6:30 at McIntosh Memorial Library

Starting February 7th and going through September (at least!)
