Programs for Teens and Young Adults
We believe everyone deserves the chance to feel included in a social setting. In our social groups, individuals of all abilities are invited to join and experience a place where everyone is not only welcomed, but celebrated.
The Teen Scene provides inclusive monthly social events for teens ages 13 through high school. The gatherings are planned by a group of peers that belong to the United High School Board of Directors: the "Teen Board". Monthly gatherings are held at various locations around the metro Richmond area. Participation costs are minimal and financial assistance is always available.
Interested in joining the Teen Board? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how.
