Here’s something to celebrate, Greenville. This year marks year 10 for the YMCA of Greenville’s signature RECESS (Recreation, Education, Community, Exercise, Social and Service) program. For many adults, the end of high school means the end of the social, educational, and recreational opportunities provided in that environment — through RECESS, the YMCA provides a quality program for adults with diverse abilities to fill these fundamental needs.

The program currently serves 73 participants in four different classes (with a brand new class started this year at the Eastside Family branch). While participating in RECESS, participants learn about:

  • Nutrition
  • Fitness
  • Social responsibility
  • Community outreach
  • Independent living skills + more

RECESS gives adults with diverse abilities a place to continue to learn new skills while connecting with friends and gaining a sense of belonging. Check out this video to learn more about RECESS from the program supervisor. *
