Columbia Honored by SNACK

On November 16, Columbia Community Service and Campus Services were honored by the Special Needs Activity Center for Kids and Adults (SNACK), a New York City-based not-for-profit organization that supports children, teens, and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders and other similar developmental and behavioral disabilities by providing after-school and weekend recreational programs designed and staffed to address their needs.

SNACK also provides prevocational training and supported employment opportunities. Through SNACK and Columbia's partnership, two young adults, Andy and Joe, were trained and offered positions with Columbia Dining. Andy and Joe help to maintain the cleanliness of John Jay Dining Hall by wiping down tables and collecting debris. They were welcomed to the team in Summer and Fall 2018, respectively.

SNACK is a grant recipient of Columbia Community Service, Columbia University’s giving campaign that supports local nonprofit organizations to help address the needs of underserved individuals in our local community.
