Building Bridges for Life aims to accomplish implementation of a community-based recreational activity engagement group for young adults on the spectrum in the Philadelphia area in order to increase participants’ recreational activity repertoire, peer social network, as well as productive activity pattern. The program consists of utilizing various recreation activities to enhance leisure interests, leisure exposure, social interaction, and peer network. The recreation activities introduced will be activities that participants can engage in independently or with support outside of the program. This is a free program overseen by a CTRS (Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist) and led by a Help-U-Bridge Direct Support Professional CTRS (or BS-MS level in Therapeutic Recreation or correlating health field) with experience in providing services to individuals on the spectrum and in modifying activities for varying needs.
This is a 5 week program designed for young adults (ages 21-29) on the spectrum living in the Philadelphia area who have completed high school, are not working, and desire a productive activity pattern as well as social network.
