Access Leisure Monthly Calendar - Virtual activities

COVID-19

With the current and evolving COVID-19 situation, all Access Leisure structured programs and events (that require participants to physically meet) are postponed. See our virtual activities, listed below .

We hope to resume regular programming as soon as possible. This decision was difficult to make, and for all of us to work together using appropriate measures we hope to protect the health and well-being of our community. Like the rest of the world, we are adapting and responding to new information and changing protocols as needed daily. We realize there is a lot of fear and anxiety out there, but we are a strong and resilient community.

PARENT AND CARE PROVIDER CHAMPION GROUP 

We are taking a month off from our Champion Group (January 2021) to work on new and meaningful sessions for parents, care providers, and family members. A survey will be available to provide feedback about this group. For more information, email heverett@cityofsacramento.org. Thank you!

Purpose of the Champion Group: While we all navigate these challenging times; Access Leisure staff would like to provide time for parents, family members and care providers of Access Leisure participants to come together to discuss topics as needed. These sessions are meant to be an open discussion and a time to discuss any challenges you are having as well as a time for us to assist you in finding the resources you and your family may need to continue to be healthy at home.

Wonder is a novel about a young boy who is not only navigating childhood, family and friend drama and the ups and downs of school… he lives with a facial difference called Treacher Collins Syndrome (TCS). This book is said to be a “page turner” and it is full of amazing life lessons and laughs. The movie version of this book features Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson, and Jacob Tremblay.

This group is great for all abilities. Join us just to listen or to follow along in the book with us. We are publicizing this group early in hopes that everyone who would like to get a copy of the book has time to do so. Audio books and eBooks are also great!
