The Discovery Project
Posted on: Monday 02nd February 2015
The Discovery Project is a mentoring project organised by Cardiff university for young people on the autistic spectrum aged 14+. It runs fortnightly from October-April, meeting every other Tuesday at 5.30pm – 7.30pm in the Bio-sciences Foyer (Sir Martin Evans Building) at Cardiff University. The aim of the project is to give young people a taster of university life, either through touring the various schools on campus, meeting current Cardiff Uni students, or discussing all issues surrounding the transition to University life, such as living with new housemates or coping with a degree level workload. They aim to create a balance between fun and social events such as bowling, as well as giving more practical workshops to support studies and applications for jobs, college and university.
