Welcome to LifeTown, a place where students and young adults with special needs can gain confidence and self-esteem, practice life skills and build friendships through engaging, creative, educational and social programming.
LifeTown’s flagship program is “Lessons for Life.” Centered in LifeTown Shoppes—an indoor Main Street with shops, businesses and more—Lessons for Life allows students to practice their classroom lessons through real-world situations. With volunteers playing shopkeeper, banker, supermarket manager and more, students can work on their social skills, money and time management, communication skills and much more.
Each school visit to LifeTown is adapted to match the curriculum needs of the school and its students.
