Which Group To Register your Teen?

Our goal is to provide a social club that is fun and meaningful for each participant. In the past year, we have held several social club events that have provided opportunities to observe and consider how well we are meeting our goals and how participants are responding. Our observations have led us to understand that we can provide a better, more enjoyable experience for participants by organizing activities into two different groups. By offering two groups, we are able to tailor activities more specifically so that individual participation in each teen/young adult might increase and, as a result, be more enjoyable. Therefore, two separate Take Flight Club programs will be offered in order to better accommodate all participants. We understand that you know your child the best and we feel confident that you will choose the best group for your child. However, if you feel that you need our guidance in helping you with your decision, we are more than happy to help. We might also request that your child switch to another group if we feel that he/she would have a more positive, meaningful and enjoyable experience in a different setting. If you have questions or need additional information, please don't hesitate to give us a call.
