The YES Groups and Awesome Groups in Mosman Park, Morley and Willetton have launched a Coder Dojo which is available to those who attend. The groups will be exploring programming, lego robotics and making a website along the way to capture the work. We aim for the Dojo to open up opportunities to connect with the local community, enabling those involved to meet other young people throughout Perth who enjoy coding and all things technical.
News & Events
Step Into Social is a fortnightly social group for 18 to 30 years old with ASD.
Run by a group leader, Step into Social offers participants the opportunity to socialise, get out into the community and explore activities that interest them.
This year, the Step Into Social group’s focus is on creating a documentary that explores what engages them as young adults living in Perth. Interests identified so far are music festivals, special effects in movies and, of course, footie! The Step Into Social group visits places or interviews people relevant to these interests, and captures it all on film to create the documentary. It’s fun, relaxed and everyone gets to have a go at filming, meet others and hang out.
