Based in New York City, Sprout is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping people with developmental disabilities grow through challenging, creative and fun experiences that enhance socialization, self-confidence and inclusion.
Our participants have the opportunity to experience age-appropriate, recreational and leisure activities in a small group setting. By offering these experiences, we hope to enhance the mobility, self-confidence and socialization of our participants. And through community-based activities, Sprout strives to break down barriers that exist between participants and the general public.
Vacation Program - Groups of 11 participants are accompanied by 3 Sprout leaders to various destinations in the U.S. as well as overseas. Vacations are available all year long and vary from 3 to 8 days long.
NYC Day and Evening Program - Groups of 11 participants are accompanied by 3 Sprout leaders to various events and activities in New York City. This year long program offers the opportunity to experience New York City through fun and cultural events.
Individuals interested in volunteering in any of Sprout's programs are trained to become Sprout leaders. Sprout Leaders provide the support and care our participants need in order to enjoy and experience both our vacation and NYC Programs.
