Want to teach something "green"?

The City has several opportunities where you can share your no- or low-cost expertise with groups of all ages in our community.
 
The Therapeutic Recreation Program provides year-round opportunities for youth and adults with disabilities to acquire skills that enable them to participate in leisure activities of their choice and enhance their abilities to function within a community setting. Summer June/July day camps for youth (6-12 year) and teens (13-18 years) work best with onsite hands activities/lectures or field trips. August thru May, with advanced notice, adults with physical and/or developmental disabilities can be included in your group's existing activities or unique activities can be created just for them. Contact Felicia Barnhart at 385-6964 or fbarnhart@springsgov.com for scheduling details.
