Summit Community Programs will also be hosting a training class for teens (ages 13+) interested in becoming a volunteer Peer Mentor for youth with special needs at recreation classes and events.  Attendees will learn more about youth with certain developmental and physical needs and how to work with and help these youth participate in recreation programs.  After the training, volunteers will be able to mentor in any of our special needs programs offered in the area, depending on the need for mentors.  Mentors receive credit for community service hours as well as valuable leadership skills, while giving back to the community. The training will be held Monday, April 13 from 4:30-6:30 pm at the Summit Community Center, 100 Morris Ave.  A $10 registration fee is required for the training.  Register for the training online at https://register.communitypass.net/summit, or by phone 908-277-2932.

In addition, Summit Community Programs will be hosting three programs for youth with special needs. These programs are led by experienced instructors or coaches and need volunteers to pair up with kids, help them participate and simply be their “buddy” during each class. Volunteers receive credit for community service and will be making a huge difference in the lives of kids in the groups. 

The tennis group meets indoors in Summit at 12:00-12:45pm (group A) and 12:45-1:30pm (group B) on Saturdays, April 18, 25, May 2, 9, 16.  The golf group meets outdoors in Summit at 6:30-7:15pm on Tuesdays, April 21, 28, May 5, 12.  The flag football meets outdoors in Summit at 2:15-3:00pm (group A), and 3:00-3:45 (group B) on Sunday, April 19, 26, May 3, 17, 31.  You are welcome to volunteer for one or more programs, depending on the need for mentors at the time you reply.  Experience in the sport is not required, just your enthusiasm and a positive attitude. Please contact Kevin at summitcan@gmail.com if you have questions or to volunteer for one of the programs.
