The Skill Share Program is filled with artistic exploration, continued learning, and friends. The creative activities include pottery, water coloring, felting and more. The continued education and exploration activities are varied and take many forms such as science experiments, cooking classes, and life skills workshops.
COMMUNITY ACCESS ACTIVITIES
During CAP, Max Higbee staff lead participants on a variety of community excursions by using public transportation and walking routes to locations around town. This program aims to improve participants' access and engagement in the community and to support participants in achieve greater independence through practicing life skills. Activities include YMCA workouts, cooking classes, hikes, sports, library visits, art projects and much more!
AFTER SCHOOL ACTIVITIES
After School Activities offer students with developmental disabilities ages 14-21 a fun, welcoming, and opportunity-filled transition from the classroom to home. A blend of structured and free time creates a variety of recreational, educational, and social options. Staff support students’ individual needs, goals, and interests, and aim to empower students to exercise their personal choice and voice on a daily basis; whether that is choosing an activity, sharing reflections from the school day, or gathering with peers to work on homework. Participants also learn and practice transferable life skills in this supportive and flexible environment such as organization, time-management, and self-advocacy. After School activities play a vital role in supporting parents in finishing their workday while their son or daughter is in a safe and enriching environment through the end of the typical workday.
