***Hey everyone!

As part of my capstone, I will be hosting a Lunch and Learn this Tuesday during office hours in Dr. Newman’s room! I will be talking about disability worldwide, global initiatives to stop the stigma surrounding special needs, and some local opportunities in which you can volunteer and get service hours. I will also teach some American Sign Language too if that interests you! The zoom link is below for anyone that would like to join virtually.

Hope to see you there!

Hi everyone!

My name is Akshi Kumar and for my Capstone project I will be doing a fun Bullet Journaling workshop during Office Hours on Tuesday March 30th. This workshop is a great opportunity to channel your inner artist and practice mindfulness. I hope to see you there!

Hey everyone!


You may have noticed the green flyers popping up around school with a list of possible volunteer opportunities; Since the beginning of the pandemic, there has been a massive decrease in relational volunteer work. As my capstone project, I will be hosting a conversation about  importance of these types of organizations, why they are worth getting involved in, and common misconceptions about members of the homeless community and the effect they have on mental health of people within it. Feel free to stop by Mrs. Ross’s room on Tuesday April 1st or join my zoom room during lunch if you would like to participate. THERE WILL BE COOKIES AND LEMONADE!!!! 


Hope to see you there, 

Georgia McKay

PALS Programs is a nonprofit organization creating inclusive camp experiences for people with and without Down syndrome. Programs are volunteer-led changing attitudes, transforming lives, and inspiring a world of belonging. This year, PALS Programs is fortunate to be in a pivotal position to host hybrid programs this Summer 2021 to serve our communities.

This summer, PALS is fortunate to be in a pivotal position to host a variety of in-person and virtual programs, and we need volunteers to help serve our community.

What will our summer programs look like in 2021? PALS is offering two options this summer:

  • In-person programswill take place over the course of one weekend (Saturday & Sunday), and will be on-site for two days of activities. There will not be a residential (overnight) component to these programs.
  • Virtual-only programs will be held over the course of one week, with 1-hour virtual events held each evening, plus two extended virtual Saturday gatherings.
  • Both summer program options are based on the proven PALS model: one-to-one pairings, team-based interactions, and activities and programming that accelerate friendships and inspire a world of belonging.

PALS North Carolina will take place on July 31st and August 1st in White Oak, NC. Participants will be on-site from 9am-5pm local time each day.

Volunteers do not need to have prior experience with Down syndrome or the disability community, and training is provided at the beginning of each program. Volunteers must be 15 or older to be eligible. PALS is committed to keeping all participants safe during all events, which will be fully outdoor with masking and social distancing requirements for all participants, as well as small cohort teams made up of no more than 10 individuals.  

PALS is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive environment for all participants with and without Down syndrome to create a world of belonging, where all people are valued for their unique perspectives and lived experiences. There are no costs associated with volunteering at PALS. 

PALS is hoping to engage with a wide range of individuals from a variety of backgrounds and lived experiences.  Please reach out to Rosemary Corcoran if you would like additional materials or information, or if you would like to chat further about partnering with PALS.
