The Bridging Out Program is a therapeutic recreation program for adults with significant neurodevelopmental disorders. The group is professionally led and has met continuously since 1990. Members learn to plan social activities, raise funds to support their projects, and develop job skills. During 2005 the members of this innovative program are learning skills to help them publish and produce Take Charge!™ curriculum materials.
Take Charge!® At Home Bridges Associates, Inc. is a partner in the Cape Cod Youth Empowerment Initiative. The Take Charge!® At Home project helps families to develop resiliency.
The Riding Outreach Program was offered in collaboration with Sea Horse Farm in Harwich, MA. Between 1999 and 2004 the program offered horseback riding, barn work and a social enrichment group for students who love horses and riding. By encouraging student abilities in a social context, confidence and learning improve. Sadly the program ended in 2004 when the barn was sold. In 2005 one of the adult volunteers expects to continue the program on Cape Cod.
