REVEL's vision is that teens and adults have boundless and affordable opportunities to connect, work, learn, live and succeed together.

Description

REVEL is a nonprofit organization where teens and young adults on the autism spectrum and their peers come to connect, socialize, expand interests, hobbies and friendships while encouraging each other to become meaningful and active members in their community. REVEL pairs teens and young adults on the autism spectrum with their typical peers to build friendships and support and encourage each other through a positive mentor relationship.

Our purpose is to fight potential isolation, depression, unemployment and risk factors related to quality of life. We do this through developing meaningful relationships, independent living skills, employment, exploration and engagement in a range of leisure activities, recreational outings and exposure to various hobbies. Social and communication skills are fostered and facilitated throughout all activities and interactions. Members’ interests, strengths, and abilities drive choice of activities, friendships, work skills and classes. We train peers and mentors to guide and welcome members into a place they can call their own.
