Project Awareness and Special Sports

The mission of PAASS is to create an inclusive, supportive environment for individuals with developmental delays and learning challenges allowing them to participate in community-based sports and recreational programs.

What We Do

Together with high school and middle school volunteers, we work with participants to teach them the mechanics of sports and support recreational programs. What’s more, our volunteers socially engage participants developing long lasting bonds and relationships. Our coaches oversee participants and volunteers to help coordinate games and classes. Since its inception, PAASS has connected participants, volunteers, coaches, and parents together to build a community of support, awareness, and acceptance.
