Leisure Is for Everyone (LIFE)

LIFE is a Leisure Education Program designed for individuals with disabilities, 20 to 35 years old. Members of the LIFE group will meet on a weekly basis, and learn the skills necessary to make the most of their leisure time. While keeping involved in recreation activities and pursuing new friendships, they will also learn to plan and organize their daily schedules outside of work using a personal planner. Our goals are to:

  • Explore personal leisure interests and community resources
  • Develop an understanding of self advocacy and personal independence through practice
  • Realize the rewards that come from volunteering

Meetings

Our usual meeting time will be Wednesday, 4 to 5:30 at SeniorPlace. At this time we do not provide transportation. We also encourage members to attend without staff, if possible. We hope this group will serve as a transition program between Teen Club and Night Club, and that members will learn the importance of choosing and planning leisure options. Call 507-774-7110 if you have questions.
