Emeritus Program


Creative Exploration

Our Emeritus Program focuses on skill retention, personal safety, vocational activities, classes, and leisure activities for participants, many of whom are aging or for whom work is not their main goal. Community integration and living skills are also emphasized, such as community safety, purchasing skills, ordering food, or using public transportation. Many of these participants also take classes at our partner organization, Saddleback College, and volunteer in the community.  The Emeritus Program also includes self-advocacy clubs like Sign Language, Baking Club and FunBrain, which are operated with participant input.  Participants learn to speak up for themselves, make choices, build friendships, listen, and reach out to others.  They also develop problem solving skills and learn how to get information to understand the things that are of interest to them.  Best of all, they do all this while having fun in the company of friends. Participant needs and activities in this program are varied, so the staff to participant ratio ranges from 1:1 to 1:4.
