Sage South’s goal is to fill each participant’s day with learning opportunities, volunteer placements, community based outings and recreation activities. Our site at 1069 Autumnwood Drive offers a variety of activities to help build productive and meaningful schedules that each participant helps to create on a monthly basis. Some of these options include:
– Life Skills teaches essential personal skills needed to maintain a healthy mind and body at home and in the community.
– Social Skills teaches appropriate verbal/ non-verbal interactions and communications
– Conflict Resolution practices techniques for participants and peers to find peaceful solutions to disagreements
– Community Outreach teaches skills for finding and participating in volunteer work
– Cooking & Baking provides gives hands-on experience in the kitchen and you get to try new recipes! (Fees Associated)
Volunteer placements are sought out and earned by the participants with the assistance of staff. Once part of the program, we can get to know each participant and begin to determine individual skill levels and areas of interest, as well as areas that may need work in order to begin the search for suitable volunteer placements.
Our program does not guarantee volunteer placements. Participants must work together with staff to build employability skills and to find volunteer placements that suit their abilities and schedules.
Recreation time gets spent in a variety of ways at Sage South. Some clients leave recreation time open for spontaneous outings or activities they plan with staff and peers, while others schedule recreation activities such as bowling, YMCA, swimming, yoga, or Zumba. Fees are associated with each activity.
In addition to these services, we operate the SWEPT yard care service for supported individuals interested in participating in a small social enterprise. SWEPT is active from spring through autumn.
