LET’S LEARN!

Buddy Up Life Skills

Within the Independence Pillar, the Buddy Up Life Skills Program provides opportunities for our Students ages 14+ with tangible skills necessary for employment, volunteer opportunities, and a sense of independence in adult life. We combine our proven learning environment with specific field experts to create a pathway for individuals with Down syndrome to thrive and become meaningful members of society.

Each class meets weekly and has multiple levels and pathways for the students to progress through, regardless of the individual’s prior knowledge and verbal and or literacy levels.

“Cooking for Life is more than just, cooking recipes. The Culinary Chef partnered with the Buddy Up for Life team creates the perfect learning environment for my Athlete. It is a hands on skills based class teaching kitchen safety, cooking methods and meal preparations.  The Life work activities outside of class are a fun and engaging way to retain the newly learned skills as well!”
