Teen Mentors Needed for Just Friends Program – Recruitment Party
January 15, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The Just Friends Program is a peer mentoring and friendship program that matches teens with developmental disabilities (e.g., Down Syndrome, Learning Disabilities, Autism, etc.) to teens without disabilities. Due to the negative stereotypes that individuals with developmental disabilities experience, Just Friends was created to bring social, recreational, and friendship opportunities to these teenagers. The opportunity to interact with teens without disabilities in ‘typical’ teenage activities is few and far between for many individuals with developmental disabilities who join Just Friends.
Teens 13-17 in the Omaha area, interested in mentoring, are invited to have a slice of pizza and take some informational brochures with them!
