Lighting the path to Advocacy, Support, Empowerment and Resources
DARC established a Youth Group as part of its outreach mission. We felt there was a great need for a youth group for young persons with a disability in our local community. The Pitt County Youth Group was started in January 2014. This group is for young adults who have any disability and are between the ages of 14-30. The group meets once a month to socialize while meeting new friends who are sharing a common goal. Our Youth Group has done a number of things throughout the year and each month is different. We have enjoyed a pajama movie night, played games, painted on blank canvases and most recently painted flower pots and planted flowers for Mother's day gifts and did pottery at The Painted Peacock for Father's Day gifts. All of our services are free and the items they make they get to take home with them. We also have a number of care attendants who come with our youth, so when possible we ensure they get to participate in the activities as well.We are starting to work in both Beaufort and Wilson counties to get a Youth Group Program started.
