Fun Filled Learning Experiences
Community Tours is a signature program offered by TEM Care to support our participants in maximizing the benefits of their communities. In our exciting and informative ventures, we employ person-centered, strength-based, and transitional strategies that promote access to and facilitate participation in events and activities that allow for more meaningful daily experiences.
Our program is designed to increase self-advocacy, social development, and transition skills through various civic, recreational, and non-work-related activities. Participants learn what their communities offer and how to access the resources needed to enjoy meaningful lives one day at a time. Some of the things participants enjoy during “Community Tours” outings include: Fire Station Tours, Community Meetings, Meetup Groups, Cooking Classes, Trips to City Hall, Parenting Classes, Food Pantries, Community Gardens and Local Farms, Yoga Classes.
TEM Care Community Tours program promotes Choice, Balance, and Independence by familiarizing participants with the resources available in their communities during individual and group excursions. We believe everyone should have knowledge of, as well as access to, people, places and things that promote meaningful experiences. Our program aims to increase resourcefulness and initiative through exposure to a versatile mix of educational, cultural, spiritual and social activities in each participant’s local and extended communities.
