***Steps to Connect is a recreation-based education program, delivered by trained facilitators. The program is intended to help people learn ways to connect to their community through recreation. In the Steps to Connect Program, participants will plan and coordinate a safe group activity that will take place during Session 2 of the 3-session program. Steps to Connect will help individuals rediscover what matters in their life and find out how recreation and social activities can help them live well with their condition.
**The goals of the program are to: Recognize personal assets that can be cultivated in/through recreation. Experience the potential of recreation for contributing to and connecting with others in the community. Discover ways to connect with one’s neighborhood and community. This program is FREE. We will be running 2 consecutive programs, Tuesday evenings or Saturday Mornings.
