Special Needs Training Institute (SNiTI)

An exclusive program in which 12 high-school students from Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow serve as peer mentors and buddies to their counterparts who have developmental, physical or emotional disabilities. Students are required to commit 75 hours (35 hours community service, 40 hours stipend) working in the JCC's Super Sunday program. In addition, each student participates in five, three-hour training sessions held on Sundays from noon-3:00 p.m. at Mercy College. Participants are selected for this rewarding program each fall.

To schedule and inerview, e-mail Mindy Cohen, LMSW, Director of Special Needs Services at the JCC on the Hudson. This project made possible through a generous grant from the J.E. & Z.B. Butler Foundation.

Sleepy Hollow Academy for Disability Education (SHADE)

The JCC and the Tarrytown Union Free School District are partnering to provide a SNiTI-style experience for Tarrytown High School students right in their own school. In this unique work-study program, high school students learn skills and techniques which prepare them for working with children who have special needs. The students earn money as they engage in a supervised internship, learn about job skills, build confidence and self-esteem.

Interviews are announced in September at Sleepy Hollow High School and are held after school.
