At SNACK*, we grow as our kids do, continuing to provide Fun, Friends, and Hope for all ages.  All classes are designed to supplement an individual’s weekly schedule.


 Snacktivities classes are structured so that individuals of all abilities are able to participate. Each class is led by an instructor trained in that particular discipline.

Independence is the ultimate goal of all SNACK* classes.


At SNACK*, individuals of ALL abilities are welcome including those with no diagnosis. ALL SNACK* activities are open to the general public.

Job Readiness: Wednesdays 10:00 AM

During class, members learn job skills through sampling a variety of jobs.    SNACK* 21+ offers instructional training in running an e-commerce offsite.  Office tasks are also taught such as taking inventory, filling orders, packing, shipping, mailing letters, attending business meetings off site as well as the more traditional shredding, filing etc.  The job coach matches skill sets to jobs in an attempt to match to an appropriate volunteer or supported employment opportunity.  Because of partnerships SNACK* has developed some of these opportunities including volunteer jobs at St. Bartholomew’s Church’s Food Pantry and instructional supported employment at Columbia University.

Exercise: Wednesdays 11:00 AM

Taught by a personal trainer, the exercise class focuses on each individual’s physical strength in order to set and achieve individual goals.  The goal of this class is to stress the importance of daily exercise to achieve overall good health and wellness.

Food Prep: Wednesdays 12:00 PM

This class is designed to teach and maintain living skills including hygiene, nutrition, proper use of utensils, table manners, and introduce the opportunity to try new things. Members also take turns in setting the table, collecting dirty plates, and loading the dishwasher after they are finished eating.

Music: Wednesdays 1:00 PM

With the guide of a music teacher, the members engage in creative musical experiences such as group improvisation, singing, songwriting, musical movement, and music-guided relaxation.  While participating in group music making, the participants develop and maintain social, emotional and cognitive skills through the relationships they build with each other, their staff buddies, and the teacher.
