Created as an alternative to traditional developmental training programs, NGS offers individuals the chance to explore their local community. The typical weekly schedule at NGS includes a variety of community-based volunteering, educational, fitness and recreational opportunities.
This year, NGS participants connected to nature at Camp Pine Woods, went on a haunted hayride at Didier Farm, took in pottery classes at Thrown Elements Pottery and tried their hand at meditation during a visit to the Bahai’ Temple. NGS serves a total of 21 individuals.
Preparations are underway to launch a second NGS program by the summer of 2016.
