Together Including Every Student (TIES)
TIES, which stands for Together Including Every Student, pairs students with developmental disabilities with peer volunteers to take part in social and community activities without parental involvement. These activities range from ice-skating to cooking classes to teen activity nights at the local library. TIES is a partnership with local nonprofit organization Starbridge whose mission is to promote inclusivity so all individuals can lead fulfilling lives in their community.
