The Ambitious about Autism Youth Network is an online space where UK autistic young people aged 16-25 can meet in peer supported sessions.
Sessions are held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings between 5:45pm-6:45pm over Zoom. They take place in a safe environment led by Ambitious about Autism staff, who are trained in safeguarding. There is no pressure to turn on cameras or microphones and its fine to just observe rather than participate.
Every session has a different theme, past sessions have included arts and crafts, comedy night, DJ sessions, language lessons, and a monthly general knowledge quiz.
There is also an opportunity for youth network members over the age of 18 to instant message each other on the platform.
