SAIL is a social, recreational, and life skills program. It is designed for young adults with special needs who have graduated from high school, are able to work competitively in the community, have the ability to participate in group activities independently, and are open to meeting new friends and having fun. SAIL activities can include: recreational group trips (e.g. bowling, movies, plays or sporting events), community outings (e.g., parks, picnics, restaurants), or just hanging out with friends playing games or watching movies.

Please see button below for this month’s SAIL calendar (reservations are required for any events listed, by calling 856-424-1333, Ext. 1410).

Other activities such as Special Olympics sports, discussion groups, Birthright trips to Israel,  financial literacy classes, cooking classes, and art classes round out the array of activities.  SAIL participants are involved with the selection and planning of activities. There is a yearly registration fee to participate with additional event fees for most activities. All activities are facilitated by professionals.
