A bi-monthly, two hour program on Sunday mornings for children and teens with special needs to join with one on one teen volunteers for a fun, social, recreational and educational group experience. Children and teens are carefully matched with a supportive, trained volunteer buddy, and are encouraged to participate in various activities, including art, music, sports and games, all infused with Jewish values, traditions and culture. Activities are led by qualified professionals and supported by our on-staff Therapist.
Parents drop off their children and then are encouraged to stay and join other parents to socialize and support one another or enjoy a 2 hour break off-site. Facilitated discussions on topics relevant to parents of children and teens with special needs will occur at particular sessions. Treats and coffee provided.
