MBS 8th Graders Volunteer at LifeTown Center in Livingston

On Tuesday, March 12, Juan Tejeda’s 8th Grade advisory had a great time volunteering at the LifeTown center in Livingston. During their visit, students worked with individuals with special abilities in a unique "town-like" area. 

LifeTown Shoppes is a simulated city where students practice, master and reinforce school curriculums in life-like shops and sidewalks, all in a supportive and encouraging environment.

Some MBS students painted nails in a nail salon while others acted as traffic police to help individuals understand road rules. Other students volunteered in the town’s bank, medical center, hobby shop, or bookstore/café to help individuals acclimate to these locations.

LifeTown is a 53,000-square foot fully-inclusive and accessible center where everyone celebrates and experiences life together. It offers a myriad of opportunities for recreation, education and therapeutic play aimed at providing a comprehensive slate of programming for individuals with special abilities and their families.

Another MBS 8th Grade advisory is slated to visit LifeTown in April.
