The Experience

Peer Mentorship Programs

In order to provide mainstream opportunities for our students, we have partnered with a few local schools to create a mentorship program. The mentors participate in a variety of activities with our students such as:
  • Music and Dance
  • Cooking
  • Art
  • Relay Races and Obstacle Courses
  • Drama
The program provides opportunities for making new friends, engaging in relationships with typical peers, building confidence and self-esteem. Our mentors gain as much from the program as our own students. They often come back and visit and have maintained relationships through the years with our students.
