- 1-2-1 track: Volunteers in our 1-2-1 track are paired with a child with special needs for the event. Your leadership team with equip you with various games, activities, and schedules to help you make the most of your time together with your buddy.
- Sibling Track: Some of our volunteers serve in our sibling track. We put special energy into creating a space for these kids as well. They have unique joys and challenges in there families and we want to invest equal love and energy into these kids as well.

- rEcess is for parents—we know your life is full of unique joys and challenges. rEcess is a break for you is an opportunity for your to rest and and reconnect with a significant other, have some “me” time, or finishing grocery shopping under 3 hours. It is yours to use however you like.
- rEcess is for children with special needs. We have one core objective. FUN! No therapy, no doctors, or paid care givers. Children with special needs are paired one on one with an adult friend whose sole objective is to make rEcess the best night of their week.
- rEcess is for siblings. Siblings are often forgotten on the spectrum of family care–not at rEcess. rEcess is also a break for our siblings to have lots of fun and connect with other siblings who understand whats its like to have a brother or sister with special needs. We have dedicated sibling volunteers and programming just for siblings.
