Making Dreams Come True
At Pathways, we grow together in our Christian faith through daily Bible study and worship. Each month students focus on developing deeper understanding of one verse from the Bible while also practicing memorization and critical thinking. Students encourage one another in faith and pray for each other’s needs in prayer circles and strengthen their relationship with God.
We know that individuals with intellectual disabilities must work harder to retain what that they learned through their school years. Education must be reinforced throughout their lifespan. At Pathways, students practice their math through individualized and group lessons, often focusing on money management and smart spending. Students get to grow their own vegetables in our garden that we use during our cooking lessons, discuss current events from around the world, and explore the many reasons why and how things happen.
As a Christian organization, volunteering is an important way our students get to show others the love of Jesus. Each week, students invest their time serving the Tulsa community visiting with residents of assisted living centers, sorting through food donations at the food bank, reading to preschoolers, and more. Volunteering provides students with opportunities to engage with more members of our community and practice important life skills while helping Tulsans in need.
Individuals with intellectual disabilities have an increased risk for certain health issues due to a tendency toward sedentary life styles. Nutrition and fitness are critical in helping improve and maintain overall health and quality of life. At Pathways, students are active in physical activities every day. Favorite activities include walking, dancing, and training for Special Olympics track and swimming.
