Ties program

Seeking Volunteers, Participants in Grades 8-12 for TIES Program: The TIES Program (Together Including Every Student) gives students with developmental disabilities (ages 8-21) the opportunity to join extracurricular, community and recreational activities of their choice with support from trained student volunteers. TIES is an amazing opportunity for student volunteers and participants to develop friendships, skills and connections. Volunteers are students in grades 8-12 who receive training and an individual support plan that describes the participant’s needs. Time commitment is based on the volunteer’s schedule. Students can join after-school activities, lunchtime support, stage crew, school dances, drumming circles, sports, community programs, school of religion, scouts, etc. For questions or more information, contact Lisa Valle, TIES coordinator, at 716-984-4847 or email vallebug@aol.com.
