WAE Beyond Workshops

After Hours: Wellness, Arts & Enrichment

This program was designed in response to the expressed desire for evening and weekend socializing and education opportunities.

Open to the public and facilitated by specialists in their field, WAE Beyond provides a set time and place for participants, ages 16 years and up, to gather, interact, and experience new learning opportunities in arts and personal enrichment. Social interaction and friendships develop organically in the shared learning experience. Creative Classes, outings, and special events will be continually developed in response to member interests and requests.

Who we are

At JSDD, the expectations for quality extend beyond what services and supports may be available to what life fulfilling experiences are possible. Our philosophy supports the notion that there are no limits to those possibilities. We have developed opportunities over time through a dynamic process of establishing relationships with the agency’s residents and WAE Center members. Unexplored interests, ideas, prospects for learning, continuing education and creativity are constantly evolving and emerge as our remarkable staff and the people we support get to know each other and share experiences.

What we do

Ability is the focus of all efforts in supporting the men and women we serve. We are delighted and inspired each and every day by the insights, revelations and creative energy that emerges when respectful relationships for the gifts and talent of every individual are considered. Learning and creativity occur organically as people share themselves and develop friendships and help each other to grow.
