The Kulanu Center for Special Services in Cedarhurst welcomed volunteers from the Goldman Sachs Team Works program on June 26. The Team Works program has Goldman Sachs employees to spend a day or two per year on critical volunteer programs and projects.
The team, led by David Goldenberg and Devora Rogoff, visited Kulanu to work alongside individuals with special needs. There was a tour of the facility and they met the students at the center’s middle and high schools.
Volunteers and career development and occupational students took part in group games and exercises led by Kulanu’s senior clinical supervisor. The interaction drew smiles from the Kulanu students, school officials said.
After lunch with members of the day habilitation program, the volunteers and adult participants travelled to Kulanu’s new satellite site. They painted the new facility and its classrooms for the expanding adult services program. A group of volunteers returned to the main campus and began construction of the school’s greenhouse.
