TIES Program Information
TIES (Together Including Every Student) is a program which promotes the participation of children/young adults with developmental disabilities in extracurricular and community activities by providing effective support. This support is provided by trained student volunteers in grades 8-12 in the Orchard Park Central School District.
Participants and volunteers join a wide variety of activities, such as arts and crafts classes, sports programs, swimming, after-school activities, drumming circles, school of religion, etc. Volunteers attend a 45 minute training session at their school. The time commitment is based on the volunteer’s schedule.
TIES will be reinstated in the fall of 2021.
