Network 1212 is our social program open to young adults, 18-35 living with autism and related challenges who do not require high supports and can participate without parents.
Many of the Network 1212 events take place in the Little Italy neighborhood.
Some of our regular events include our Monthly Meet-Ups at Pompei Restaurant on Taylor Street which occurs on Sunday and includes lunch and games and the chance to socialize; Urban Hike With Mike, which occurs on Wednesday evenings and brings young adults with autism and related challenges to different Chicago neighborhoods for dinner via public transportation; Current Events & Conversation with Mike, a group that gathers at our UAS West Side Transition Academy (participants can join via Zoom) to discuss the news; Movie Nights, and other events.
Our goal with these events is to support young adults with autism in developing relationships, building their social networks and having fun.
