Our social clubs are looking for volunteers, ages 16 or older, to join in the fun!!
Our Social Clubs are for young people with Down syndrome to have fun and socialize with others their age. Participants engage in a variety of activities ranging from sports such as basketball to karaoke, right in our own venue! The clubs are held in Church of the Way on Lilac street (off of Grant Avenue). Each night is sure to be a fun and exciting engagement for both youth and club staff. And we would love for you to join the team!
