Young Adult Network

We’ve engaged a network of more than 1,200 friends and their families and expanded the scope of our work significantly, offering more than 200 recreational and educational programs a year. We are expanding efforts to engage our young adults’ ages 18 – 45 of all abilities through initiatives like Friends on the Town and i-Volunteer, which offer opportunities for older members to develop meaningful relationships with individuals and organizations. We hope to build on this work with the help of our alumni as we seek to make genuinely equal social opportunities for everyone.
