Beyond Basic

Beyond BASIC assists adults with intellectual disabilities in becoming contributing members of society by providing a program that enables independent living skills beyond the basics. Our curriculum provides tools and develops skills in an individualized program that fosters independence to the fullest extent while advocating a movement for inclusion within the community.
We are in need of some enthusiastic and fun loving friends to help us throughout the day! Beyond BASIC loves adding new friends to the team, and we promise you will have a blast while making an impact in the lives of our teammates. We are currently here Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9am to 5pm. We are extremely flexible, and you can sign up for as many hours as you wish. Please contact us at to find out more!
