Social opportunities are defining moments of all college-aged students. In order to increase social skills, ACCESS students participate in a wide range of social events, organizations, activities, clubs, and recreational events. Socialization among peers generates self-esteem and healthy, authentic friendships that last a lifetime.
Students are paired with up to five Peer Mentors that help students improve skills: Academic, Meal, Employment, Social, and Wellness Mentors. The Social Mentors provide support to ACCESS students by teaching and modeling safe and healthy social skills.
ACCESS often organizes events for the entire ACCESS team which consists of a minimum of approximately 40 individuals. See what ACCESS students have been up to this year!
