ACCESS Club Activities
The ACCESS Club is divided into specific modules/activities that our young adults will take part in each week. All activities are individualized to include choice and personal preference where possible. Our current club activities have been designed based on feedback from previous club attendees to ensure an interactive and enjoyable experience for everyone
Organization & Planning

Our weekly club culinary experience aims to provide skills in food sourcing, preparation/organization, recipe planning, budgeting in the context of shopping for ingredients and meal planning, along with considerations for factors to promote a healthy nutritional lifestyle.
Geneva Surrounding City Trip
Our young adults have the opportunity to explore nearby cities and learn how to independently navigate new locations using organization, pre-excursion planning and social skills.
Our social skills group presents a range of opportunities for adults to learn the soft skills that help empower people to make the most of the learning opportunities within the community and workplace. Each young adult who attends will have the opportunity practice these skills on various excursions and social interactions throughout the club.

Geneva city excursions give each young adult an opportunity to take the lead and show their peers areas that they are familiar with in Geneva. These excursions give our adults the opportunity to put the core social skills they have learned into practice within their local communities.
