The Network is a social networking program for neurodiverse adolescents and young adults aged between 16-30 years. The goal is to provide an opportunity to meet others and hopefully make connections. We meet at the beginning of the month in-person and in the middle of the month online and you can choose which meetings to come to.
When and Where
The Network takes place once a month in person (usually the first Wednesday of the month) from 6-7:30 p.m. Sometimes we meet at the UMass Lowell south campus (in Coburn Hall on south campus) and sometimes we hang out somewhere else (e.g. pizza, bowling, etc.). We also meet once a month (usually the third Wednesday of the month) from 6-7:30 p.m. online on a Discord server. During our online meetings we chat and play Jackbox and other games. You will receive a schedule of Network meeting events for the year so you will know what is coming up.
There is a $75 annual fee to participate in The Network. This fee also covers the parent group which meets at the same time and place for our in-person meetings. Scholarships are available for those who cannot afford the fee. Ashleigh Hillier, Ph.D. is the Program Director and Professor of Psychology at the University of Massachusetts Lowell.
