Empowering Teens to Make Confident Life Decisions

 Teens Taking Flight (TTF) seeks to offer social opportunities, workplace experience, and recreational outlets for teenagers and young adults with disabilities.  TTF will provide safe, educational, and entertaining growth opportunities for teenagers and young adults with cross disabilities.  The Teens Taking Flight program is run by the participants with support from Abilities in Motion (AIM) staff.

Our goal is to provide youth with activities that will expand their physical, social, and recreational opportunities by providing planned monthly activities to be held in a comfortable and accessible environment.  Abilities in Motion hopes to empower teens to make confident life decisions.

Who can participate?

Any youth or young adult with a disability from age 14 to 25.  TTF is free to join and stay involved!
