The TIES program (Together Including Every Student) is available to students in the Newark School District. TIES matches student volunteers in grades 8-12 with children and young adults ages 8-21 who have developmental disabilities. TIES gives students with developmental disabilities the opportunity to participate in extracurricular and community activities.
Volunteers are needed to attend activities such as Scouts, intramurals, after school clubs, Newark Recreation programs, and swimming lessons with the participants. The volunteers will give needed support to the participant in the activity.
This is a great opportunity for those interested in psychology, social work, or teaching, or those who simply want to make a positive difference in their community.
If you know someone who would benefit as a TIES participant or if you would like more information about becoming a volunteer, please visit TIESProgram.org
