Seeking New Non-Profit Partners
Bike to the Beach Seeks to Expand Our Impact.
Bike to the Beach is expanding our local partnership program with a new 3-tiered model. Our goal is to help local non-profit service providers that are making a difference. With different levels of engagement depending on each partner organization’s capabilities, it is easier than ever for local organizations to benefit from our ride and to pick a level that is appropriate their organization. Let us know if you think a local provider is a good fit!
A great example of the impact our local partners are making. Here is Caitlin’s story:
Prior to working at external job sites, students receive comprehensive training across a wide number of vocational areas to prepare for employment. Students begin with simulated work environments to help them become independent in various skills. Then, they are given the opportunity to practice their skills around the school. After demonstrating the ability to meet the demands of a simulated work environment, students enter external job sites.
The Program at Crossroads School serves two purposes – it gives students the tools they need to live as independently as possible and gives employers an understanding of those with developmental disabilities. Caitlin is treated just like a regular member of the SNLG Team; invited to team dinners and outings.
