We provide Hangouts for pre-teens ages 9-12 every Tuesday from 4PM – 5PM and for teens ages 13+ over Zoom every Tuesday from 5PM – 6PM. For full schedule details, check out the Project Rex calendar.

We start every hangout with introductions and share our special interests. Examples of items we share over Zoom include our pets, games, art, and card collections. If anyone wants to participate with their audio or video turned off, they can type in the chat or just watch.

For the second half of group, we play games on Zoom, including charades, Pictionary, Jeopardy, escape room, and Scattergories. We also work together to create funny ad-lib stories.

The two most amazing things about these groups are everyone’s acceptance and inclusion of everyone in group and the social opportunity it provides in a time of isolation.
