    Teens Hub - Games Night


    About our Group

    Our Teens group is for teens with Aspergers, autistic teens, and those with a similar neurodivergent profile to meet and hang out to play games or chat while their parents / carers meet in another room at the same venue to chat, provide support and share ideas and advice.


    • Teens will be supervised by our Teens Mentors.
    • In another room at the same venue, parents will be met by our Parents Contact to chat and exchange experiences.


    The Teens Team:

    • Callan T, Callan B, Jack D, Sunny - Volunteer Mentors


    All AV volunteer group leaders share the lived experience of their group participants and welcome new attendees. All AV volunteers have a Working with Children Check.


    Each teen must be accompanied by one parent or carer.

    A parent or carer must attend with their teen and must remain on site for the duration of the activity.

    We understand that another parent or family member may wish to join the activity, however we can only accommodate one adult per registered teen, and we are unable to accommodate additional adults on the night.


    Cost: $10 for members, $15 for non-members, FREE for +Groups membership holders and first-time attendees.

              Young Adults Hub: in person meeting


              About the Young Adults Group

              Our Young Adults group is a great place for Aspergers, autistic and other similar neurodivergent profile adults aged 18 years - 35 years (approx.) to meet, chat, and play games with no social pressure. As this is a parent/carer-free zone, we invite any parents or carers to attend our separate Parents & Carers group.


              As the November meeting is so late in the month and as the December meeting will be during AV's end of year closure period, we are combining the two and going out for a group dinner. We are going to the Pancake Parlour in Malvern. 


              About our Group Leaders

              The session is facilitated by the Young Adults Group team:

              • Matthew - YA Group Leader
              • Lyndel - Young Adults Co-Facilitator
              • Cal, Eleanor, Tim, Todd - YA Mentors

              All AV volunteer group leaders share the lived experience of their group participants and welcome new attendees. All AV group leaders have a Working with Children Check.


              Cost: $5 for members, $10 for non-members, FREE for +Groups membership holders and first-time attendees.

              Anyone wishing to attend an AV activity must register before attending.

              For in-person events, this allows us to ensure that we have enough volunteers attending on the night to support the group, and to ensure that the venue can safely accommodate all attendees.

              In the event that the activity is cancelled or transferred to an online meeting, we will only be able to let you know if you have registered.

              NB: Unregistered attendees may incur an admin fee of up to $10.
