I do this same program in Toronto, its called Track 3. I start next week, can't wait. I am not a volunteer, one of the instructors.

It is a great oppertunity for kids with developmental disabilities to learn a new skill.

Its a super challanging program for the staff as we need to tailor our teaching to the kids and it sometimes takes a couple of weeks to get into the groove.
