Mentally Retarded Young Adults
Taste New Experiencs at Center
Five and a half years ago, the
Jewish Center, in cooperation with
the Northwest Child Rescue
League, initiated a social program
for mentally retarded and slow-
learning young adults. One group
met weekly at the Center.
Since then, the program has
grown. There are now 40 members
in three groups: Israel Boys for
older teen-age and young adult
boys; Israel Girls for older teen-
age and young adult girls; and the
Detroiters, a co-ed adult group.
The three groups, which meet
informally on Thursday evenings
throughout the year, provide social
and recreational experiences.
Clubs are led by specially-
trained staff who help the mem-
bers plan activities, such as Jew-
ish holiday celebrations, camping
trips, gym and pool nights and
socials. The groups have learned
to develop their own programs and
assume responsibility for carrying
