Programs for Youth with Special Needs
Friday, September 6, 2013 • 11:30am
Youth with special needs and those who could use a little help and encouragement in participating in recreation are welcome to register for several programs being offered again this fall by several neighboring towns and coordinated by TryCAN. Our coaches and instructors and excited to return to help our youth develop skills that may allow them to pursue a sport or activity further or simply provide them with a meaningful recreation experience. These popular and affordable classes, open to both residents and nonresidents, also use trained teen Peer Mentors from local middle and high schools to help participants learn and have fun. We have a full schedule of programs:
· Reading Club (ages 5-9) – Thursdays starting September 25.
