Pathways for Exceptional Children
Washington Township Recreation Department is pleased to announce their partnership with Pathways for Exceptional Children. Through this collaborative effort our first session for Peer Mentor Training will be on September 12, 2012 from 5-7pm at the Washington Township Senior Center for children ages 8 – 18. The training course will give information and provide hands on learning centers that will help to educate those interested in being a mentor for children of varying ability levels. This initial Peer Mentor training class will coordinated by Christina Egan as she works to earn her Girl Scout Gold Award.
Pathways for Exceptional Children is a non-profit organization based in Montville, NJ devoted to creating the leadership in our schools and communities that will help achieve the vision of creating a more inclusive society for all our children. One of the most important qualities this program instills is empathy. Through this collaborative effort, the Washington Township Recreation Department will be offering classes in conjunction with Pathways Peer Mentors as volunteers to support differently abled children in these activities. Peer mentors receive community service hours for their volunteer time.
