Club 21

Club 21 is a social group where you can “change lives by having fun!” Each Club is made up of approximately 10 adults with developmental disabilities or mental health issues plus an equal number of nondisabled adults from the community.

Is Club 21 right for you? 

Do you enjoy building friendships with diverse new people? Do you need an excuse to make time in your busy schedule for some badly needed fun? Are you interested in getting to know more about what your community has to offer? Are you hoping to make a difference in someone’s life? If your answer is yes, so is ours!

What’s the commitment? 

Club 21 members meet twice a month- once with their partner and once with other members in a small group or with the whole club- to enjoy activities such as picnics, watching a ball game, or sharing a hobby. The total time commitment is about 5 hours a month. At whole –club gatherings, the Club 21 Coordinator will help you plan your next adventures.

Who are the Club 21 partners? 

Club 21 partners are like you: they want to meet new people and get out in their community.
Your only role is to enjoy mutual friendships! If you have a car, you may be asked if you can transport your partner, but this is not required.
