Via of the Lehigh Valley, a nonprofit that provides services for children and adults with disabilities such as autism, cerebral palsy and Down syndrome, is offering the Via Teen Winter Experience for teens and young adults (from ages 13 to 21) with disabilities, December 26-28 and December 31. The program provides meaningful activities to enhance social connections during the time the individuals are not in school.
“Participants in Via Teen Winter Experience spend the winter break building their social skills in community settings and reconnect to relationships and friendships they formed over the summer,” says Coordinator Jess Elliott. Via Teen Experience, a part of Via Community Connections, helps students develop life skills to help them make transition from high school to adult life. Via’s 10-week summer program encourages participants to learn about their community, do career shadowing and mock interviews with human resources representatives from companies and volunteer at organizations across the Lehigh Valley.
Via is located at 336 W. Spruce St., Bethlehem. For more information, call 610-317-8000 or visit ViaNet.org.
