Build friendships with the Explorers

Explorers is the social recreation program from Community Connections, giving adults with IDD and/or ASD a chance to get a fresh perspective, build social skills, and make new friends.

Through structured activities in small groups and with local experts, Community Connections staff provide a safe environment to enhance social skills and build friendships in real-life situations with other Explorers, among community partners, and the public.

Community Connections staff guide communication, help identify social cues, and offers suggestions on appropriate interactions.

The guidance from staff is woven naturally into activities and experiences. Through this process, the Explorers gain skills and confidence in growing friendships.
