Creative. Resourceful. Adventurous. FREED’s got a new mantra for youth and young adults with disabilities this summer.
FREED, a resource center for people with disabilities, is kicking off the summer with a new slate of activities bringing young people with disabilities together with a focus on fun. The Summer C.R.A.Y.Y.z (Creative, Resourceful, Adventurous Youth and Young Adultz—pronounced “craze”) program offers a variety of regular fun peer events, including an Artistic Hour (Mondays from 3:00 to 4:00 pm), a Leadership Team (Wednesdays from 1:00 to 3:00 pm), games, movies, and time out on the town.
The fun and games are just a small part of FREED’s goal to assist young folks with disabilities to become strong, independent adults.
The organization’s new Youth Transition Program is designed specifically to connect transition age youth and young adults (ages 14 to 24) with information and services that will help them increase their independent living skills as they move from high school into adult life and responsibilities.
The program helps youth and young adults develop independent living and leadership skills through individual goal setting, peer support, application assistance, advocacy, and more.
