Berry Good Farms

Volunteer Needs

NFSSE welcomes companies, individuals and organizations to spend time with our young adults in the Barkin' Biscuits kitchen or Berry Good Farms greenhouse or garden through its reverse inclusion program. Sign up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20F0C44AEAC2BA5F94-berry

Reverse Inclusion does not only benefit NFSSE students. The typical students and adults who participate in various programs at NFSSE as a part of Reverse Inclusion learn to interact with and establish friendships with students who are different from them. Often, these relationships flourish and extend beyond the classroom and into the community, where typical students and adults are able to combat stereotypes and champion for our students and young adults with IDDs.

Tesori Family Foundation

3-21 Classic

Dates Volunteers Needed

12/02/2019

Volunteer Needs

Volunteer or reserve a team at the 3-21 Golf Classic, a fundraising event for the Tesori Family Foundation. In celebration of an extra (3rd) copy of the 21st chromosome (aka Down syndrome), groups play in threesomes rather than the standard foursomes. And each of the (you guessed it!) 21 threesomes are only allowed 21 clubs total. 3-21. How does each threesome strategize? Which clubs do they share? What do they do without access to everything you’d “normally” have on the golf course? We truly enjoy watching teams strategize with limited “tools” (21 clubs total per team) on the course, similar to challenges kids and adults with Down syndrome overcome daily.
