FRIENDS N' FUN
One of the most valuable partnerships enjoyed by the Community Center is with Friends N’ Fun, a social activities group for Maple Valley area individuals with special needs. The group is designed for individuals ages 16 and up and meets on Tuesday evenings at the Center or the Den, depending on that evening’s activity. Friends N’ Fun provides these young adults with the opportunity to socially engage with their peers in a fun setting, often leading to the formation of lifelong friendships.
Friends N' Fun meets on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays from 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm in The Den Youth Center
3rd Tuesdays from 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm in the GMVCC Main Hall.
HOME SCHOOL SUPPORT
Are you considering homeschooling? Does your child continue to struggle at school? Is your little one just not ready to deal with crowds of children in a public school situation? Perhaps your family situation or business would allow you to travel often, and you want everyone to enjoy the opportunity. Have you heard so many wonderful things about homeschooling that you just want to see what it’s all about? Families decide to homeschool for all sorts of reasons, and then often continue homeschooling simply because of the freedom and they like the effect it's had on their children and family life.
Come hang out and meet other homeschooling families, make friends and become part of our homeschooling community!
Maple Valley Homeschoolers meets every Tuesday from 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm in the GMVCC Main Hall.
