Our rules are simple. Be Really Nice & Have Fun!

​Blending In is a social network creating safe, positive, and welcoming social and recreational experiences for young people. Our Clubs are especially for introverts, home-schoolers, "new kids," those with minor disabilities, and/or any young person who wants to have some fun and make nice friends. We are a 100% volunteer organization, 100% funded by donations. We are not a social services agency, and we are not licensed to perform any services of any kind. We just believe socialization is critical for our wellbeing, and we know it can be hard to find friends sometimes. 

We have two Teens clubs in Indiana, with limited membership for ages 13-19. We are also collaborating to potentially start a club for ages 8-12, and a young adults club for 20-somethings.

Youth clubs have 3 types of events,

1. Monthly Library Events - Parents/Volunteers facilitated. Typical Activities include Introductions, light discussions, informal conversation & club decision making, Snacks, Board Games, Video Gaming, Arts & Creativity. Membership or RSVP Required. Minors must be accompanied or signed-in by a responsible adult.

2. Family Outings - Parents or Guardians coordinate recreational activities in the community. Events are shared on the club's Facebook group and coordinated through the Quick Club App.  Open to non-members at the discretion of the club coordinator. Minors must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

3. Special Events - Parents/Volunteers facilitated single event or limited number of events, such as Arts & Crafts, Birthday Parties, Improv Fun, or epic games of Dungeons and Dragons. Open to non-members at the discretion of the club coordinator. Minors must be accompanied by a responsible adult unless otherwise advertised.


We've had members with feelings of social anxiety and  awkwardness form positive aquaintenships and friendships over just a few months. We encourage our members to interact spontaneously, make as many decisions as possible, and to communicate openly, constructively & respectfully to work out problems.  We also allow members freedom to do their own things if they like, such as draw or play on their smart phones. It may take a few visits to get over some anxieties, but over time we've seen young people come out of their shells, form friendships, and show remarkable improvements in self-confidence. 

Our club members are always happy to welcome visitors, so please fill-out the form below if you'd like to come check out a monthly library event or join a family-outing (See our Facebook group posts for info on past and future family-outing events).
