Wildcat Friends

February 24, 2012 @ 11:45 am - 4:00 pm

Wildcat Friends
(ages High School Graduate to 35)

Wildcat Friends allows young adults with developmental disabilities   the opportunity to experience college. On Wednesdays from 3:00 – 7:00,   students with disabilities come to campus to experience a class geared   towards their specific interests, a recreation activity, and a dining   hall experience. UNH students from the various departments are involved   in activities.

The overall goal of Wildcat Friends is for young adults with   disabilities to experience college in a meaningful and stimulating way   that allows them to interact and make friends with college students,   discover a lifelong love of learning, and have an experience that is   typical of their peers. Wildcat Friends is a fee-based program with   limited enrollment. There is a $400 tuition that includes a meal at   Holloway Commons, Recreation time, and a class component.

To be considered for this program, participants must be involved in   other Friends Project activities for at least 6-12 months.  Current  news  and information will be published here but you can see past  information  at our old site for Fall 2009 through 2010,  at   www.wildcatfriends.blogspot.com.

This is NOT a drop in program.

Bus fair from Portsmouth to UNH is $1.50
