The St. Paul JCC strives to provide opportunities to people of all ages and abilities for inclusion in all programs. A primary service goal of the St. Paul JCC is to provide an environment that supports individuals and their families to participate in any and all available programming.
In addition, the St. Paul JCC leads and supports the greater community by providing advocacy for inclusive services, education to other service providers, and training in strategies for inclusion in community settings.
We provide full inclusive opportunities for children and teens of all abilities in the following youth programs:
Adults with special needs are welcome to attend all programs offered at the St. Paul JCC.
At monthly Sibshops, kids take part in a variety of recreational activities and games that encourage informal sharing, problem-solving, making new friends and having fun. The focus is on them and their special role in the family.
Entering its third year, Club Kulanu is designed for individuals with developmental disabilities ages 16-22 to learn valuable life skills in an inclusive setting. Club Kulanu, Kulanu which is Hebrew for "all of us," utilizes both Camp Butwin and opportunities in the community to help participants learn about and experience activities in four key areas.
