Who We Are: The purpose of Helping Hands is to involve non-disabled peers as peer mentors/tutors for the students in the Exceptional Learning Center. These students will be expected to assist the ELC students with morning work before school, eat lunch with the ELC students on occasion and participate in activities planned during the school year.
When We Meet: Before school, as well as specific field trips throughout the year
Where We Meet: Exceptional Learning Center (ELC) at Liberty, or the LMS Media Center
