The community has always been grappling with the issue of cliff-steep decline in support and engagement for children with special needs outside of the school system. In school, students are meaningfully engaged in academics, the arts and sports and through these activities, they develop functional skills and build important relationships with their peers and teachers. But what happens when they leave school at 18 years old? Where can they continue to build skills and develop their unique identities? Where are the avenues and opportunities for them to participate in social activities and create meaningful relationships and stay connected to the community?
A group of artists, educators and administrators have come together to try to plug this gap. By starting the Harmony Community Choir, they hope to meaningfully engage young adults with special needs, in a casual, recreation and enjoyable environment, through singing and dancing.
