ASPERTEENS  GRAFFITI ART NIGHT

Come join our popular monthly Teens group, for secondary students aged between 13 to 18 years.

Meet Aspergers peers during a Graffiti/Art based activity lead by our graffiti art expert Tommy, assisted by our trained peer mentors, while parents and carers get to catch up nearby. 

Our young adult leaders Callan and Sunny encourage the new teens on the night and parent leaders support and welcome everyone to the group. Please don't forget to register/sign-in on arrival with Peter. 

Costs:   Free (to members of Aspergers Victoria)

Time:  7:00 - 9:00 pm - Doors open for registration at 6:50 pm 

Activity for Teens:
Design / Art Activity with an artist, with a Board Games option if this doesn't appeal

What to Bring:  
Art / drawing / Design materials your teen likes to use.
Event if it's just a sketch pad and a good grey lead!  Strengths approach welcome!

Discussion Topic for Parents:



  • Our Groups Co-Ordinator  will provide a short outline on Aspergers Victoria's  upcoming Work Experience Project pilot and our other plans;
  • Our Parent Peer Leaders will seek your views on what your Teen's barriers are for finding work experience/part-time work or future work. This will be valuable data to guide our exciting project. 

Aspergers Victoria volunteers with lived experience run all meetings and welcome new families. All group leaders have a Working With Children Check.  Refer to our Groups page for more information. 

Our teen attendees should be able function independently in the group setting, with no carers in the Teen group.  Our Teen group are very encouraging and welcoming with their peers. Please introduce any new teens to our Leaders on the night.
