Aim High is for adults (18+) with Down syndrome. Would you like to join?
Aim High is a social and life skills group for people to:
- Get together with friends
- Meet new friends
- Have fun going places and doing things
- Try out some new things
- Learn while having fun
People can enjoy lots of different activities together including:
- Concerts or shows
- The beach
- Sports and physical activity
- Eating out – restaurants, cafes, pub meals
- Local events e.g. Festival of Perth, sporting events
Aim High members are supported by an experienced group leader and volunteers of similar ages to members, who enjoy the activities as much as members, share their own strengths, hobbies, experiences and live out the true meaning of inclusion through the program. Building on life skills in a natural way is an important part of every session.
Aim High club members help with planning and are encouraged and supported to develop confidence and leadership skills as part of the program.
Club members have developed their own set of rules about having respect for all (being friendly, listening, encouraging others and giving others a go), being socially mature when out and about, participating fully in chosen activities and having fun.
Aim High usually runs on weekends and the day/time depends on the activity – it could be day time or evening. People are able to select, book and pay in advance for the activities they are interested in. There is a fee of $15 for each session and extra money may be needed to pay for some of activities e.g. dinner, movies, entry fee, public transport and so on.
