S.T.A.R.S.

Adolescent years can be a particularly challenging time for anybody, especially teens with Down syndrome. In 2009, the DSG STARS (Special Teens Achieving Real Success) Program was founded. STARS provides a fun and safe environment for teens, ages 12 to 18. Teens have the opportunity to make new friends, volunteer in their community, explore employment skills and increase self-confidence. The focus of the program is on social, prevocational and life skills to help each teen reach their greatest potential. 

With the inception of the STARS program, the DSG has furthered its mission by providing continual programming to support teens as they prepare for adulthood and independence. 

For more information/questions, please contact julie@kcdsg.org or 913-213-5485.
