The Cornelius PARC Department is partnering with the Huntersville Parks and Recreation Department to host recreational programs for participants with special needs this summer. The programs include tennis training, football, cheerleading, and an art-focused summer camp. Volunteers are needed for all of the above.
Director Nicole Groth said that volunteers are vital to the mission of the special needs program.”We couldn’t do it without them. For every program that is youth oriented we have one volunteer on hand per child—the kids get a lot more out of it.” Aside from the summer events, Cornelius PARC hosts year-round monthly programs for both children and adults with special needs.
