We welcome children ages 7 through 15 in our hubs, and we do acknowledge the value multi-age groups have in creating compassion, connection, and understanding of different abilities and needs. However, we also know that a mature teenager might desire and thrive with additional responsibilities while a younger child might have their own desires. While we keep the entire group together often, throughout the week, participants age 7 to 10 and 11 to 15 might break off for their own activities, splitting up for community walks or experiences. Additionally, teenagers may be offered leadership roles within the group. These will be created and offered at the behest of hubs staff, and they may include supporting younger children, teaching an activity, researching a portion of an excursion, or leading the way on a walk.
