TIES [Together Including Every Student]
gives students with developmental disabilities [ages 8-21]
the opportunity to join extracurricular and recreational
activities of their choice with support from trained student
volunteers. Volunteers are students in grades 8-12 who
receive training and an individual support plan that
describes the participantís needs.
"TIES helps participants and volunteers
have opportunities to develop leisure skills; community and
school connections; and friendships. Students have joined
after-school activities, trips and classes through Hilton
Parks and Recreation and the YMCA, school dances, drumming
circles, sports, School of Religion, etc.," said Eileen
Snyder, TIES Coordinator.
