Disabled Students Volunteer
Since we are a transition program for students with multiple disabilities, we try to provide opportunities to volunteer in the community. SCARCE let our students come once a week and use their classroom as a volunteer site. They peel and sharpen crayons. The students enjoyed this and SCARCE gave them meaningful volunteer site within the community.
