Community, education, and enrichment.
Oak Leyden’s Lifelong Learning Program provides a community for adults with I/DD. Programs take place in our day centers or in the community and focus on skill development, personal interests, supported employment, and community engagement.
Structured programming focuses on individualized living and economic self-sufficiency skills, including nutrition, safety, financial management, and self-advocacy.
Participants socialize with peers and join groups that fit their interests, including gardening group or our Voices of Oak Leyden Choir. And our participants are often on-the-go, exploring the Chicagoland area on outings for both fun and function.
