You mentioned volunteering, so that is a great opportunity to meet people already. Even if you go only once a week, maybe you can start trying to talk to someone that is a regular there, so they start to remember you. Making friends there can always provide connections with other people outside of the program, so it's a start. Good luck!

Hm, what about that bowling program you mentioned?

Does your church not have any sort of groups with younger people that you can join?

the people at the bowling is the same as church basically my day-program, church (and bowling) are all older folks with a few people around their 30s. Most folks around my age have moved out of the town and don't return IF ever until they have children (unless they get like cancer). So the only programs at church for "young people" are for 12-17 year olds (ie "youth")
