Pathways & Channels


Pathways Day Program

Pathways is a community-based program that acts as a transition for adults from schools, home and other programs.

Pathways provides individuals with a developmental disability a variety of integrative activities including job readiness, life-skills, social skills and much more. Volunteering at the Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre, The Scott Mission, as well as partnerships with Hillel Jewish Campuses of Toronto are all examples of the successes our participants have already experienced.

The program also includes creative arts, music appreciation, recreational outings, special guests, physical activity and cooking programs.

Participants of Pathways must be 18 years and older and should be able to contribute to the programming. The cost varies according to the ratio of support necessary.

The program is held Monday to Friday (except on statutory and Jewish holidays) from 9am - 3pm. There are two locations: Pathways North at the Reena Community Residence, and Pathways South, at the University of Toronto Campus.
