Aim High is for adults (18+) with Down syndrome.
- Get together with friends
- Meet new friends
- Have fun going places and doing things like concerts, restaurants, the beach and movies
- Try out some new things
- Learn while having fun
Aim High members are supported by an experienced group leader and volunteers of similar ages to members, who enjoy the activities as much as members, share their own strengths, hobbies, experiences and live out the true meaning of inclusion through the program. Building on life skills in a natural way is an important part of every session.
Club members have developed their own set of rules about having respect for all (being friendly, listening, encouraging others and giving others a go), being socially mature when out and about, participating fully in chosen activities and having fun.
Aim High usually runs fortnightly on Friday evenings or over the weekend. The day, time and duration depends on the activity – it could be daytime or evening.
