We are raising $10,000.00 for our Social Group events and we are currently at $587.94
BCEdAccess hosts a free Social Group series and pop-up events for elementary to secondary students with disabilities or extra support needs and their peers. These events aim to provide opportunities to get together and have fun online. Our hope in running these groups is to provide something that fosters connection and positive mental wellness for children and youth, as well as their families.
LGBTQ2S+ Social Group:
These sessions, hosted by 2 experienced, easy-going facilitators, Sydney and Chai, will bring together LGBTQ2SI+ teens to hang out and socialize in a safe, intersectional space.
Bobbi’s Adventures Social Group:
Take a moment to grab a snack and a stuffie and join some friends online for games, chatting and exploring the world like Carmen San Diego! Activities are led by the children’s curiosity in a safe, disability/neurodivergent friendly environment.
Patricia’s Minecraft Social Group:
These sessions, hosted by skilled facilitator Patricia, will engage participants in their interests and offer a safe, neurodivergent and disability affirming space to play Minecraft with new friends.
As a parent I loved to see that my son was having fun in an inclusive and fun environment and as family we enjoy the little break.

He was so happy to get to meet new people who had a similar interest. He felt welcomed and felt like he belonged.
