PALS spends WDSD14 with Google

Hi PALS!!!
We are so excited to have celebrated 3/21/14, World Down Syndrome Day, in Mountain View, California with a PALS Adventure at Google! Our campers and participants from local Down Syndrome organizations were able to work one-on-one with some of Google’s wonderful employees. Together they enhanced their skills in Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Hangouts, and even prepared for a job interview. We finished the work day off in true PALS fashion with a dance party in the Google bowling alley!

Then the party continued in San Jose where we continued to celebrate World Down Syndrome Day with many of the local organizations from the Bay Area. Our participants showed the crowd how proud they were to be a part of the PALS family with incredible speeches about their accomplishments and of course, lots more dancing!

We are looking forward to continuing to work with Google and create even more PALS Adventures on the West Coast!

Upcoming PALS Adventures!

We are so excited to announce 3 PALS Adventures coming up this spring! 

To celebrate World Down Syndrome Day, PALS will be collaborating with Google to host a Google Technology Day Adventure in Mountain View, CA on March 21st. Adventure leader, Meaghan O'Day has been working very hard to create a technology based curriculum to teach campers all about using Google, creating a resume, and much more! 
On March 30th, PALS will launch another technology and learning based Adventure at Rider University in New Jersey. Archetype will be sponsoring this event that is heading by Ollie Forsythe and Shane Kensil.
