Children and youth currently involved with Plugged In experience inclusive and supportive programming regardless of age, ability or any other potentially segregating factors. Plugged In is particularly proud that their recreational programs are specifically inclusion-based, with special attention given to the motor, sensory, cognitive and social needs of its patrons.
It is with the needs of these types of children in mind that the idea for BrainChild was born, and it is our goal to have these children attend our event such that their lives can be enriched and a more appealing future open up for them.
Our chaperones and event organizers will also benefit from this incredible day. Parents and guardians, Plugged In volunteers, as well as ‘Bigs’ (the big brothers and big sisters paired with children in the BGCBigs program) will get to experience a free, fun-filled day with these special children and youth, specifically designed to let them ‘let their hair down’ as well. In this way, we believe the child-adult relationships of our attendees will be strengthened.
