Triangle Program Update – August 2020
Triangle Day Programs and Supported Employment Programs at Malden Main Street, Malden Pearl Street, Randolph, and Salem are all currently open at limited capacity. Through an hybrid model, our dedicated staff members also continue to support other participants through online programming, mailing activity packets, and, new this summer, Triangle After Dark sessions. Triangle After Dark is our new after-hours program for people across all Triangle programs to come together to enjoy musical performances, trivia nights, and other recreational opportunities. This program is designed to build community and provide an outlet for the hardworking people in our programs to have a little fun.
Our nine residential homes are continuing to stay diligent, safe, and productive, but are also looking for ways to give back to the community. As part of a generous grant from Save the Harbor Save the Bay’s Better Beaches program, our homes will be making trips to local beaches to enjoy some time in the sun and do some clean-up projects. We are thrilled that, even during the pandemic, we can continue this valued partnership for the third year in a row.
Triangle also just celebrated the opening of its newest site, the Triangle Workforce Development and Testing Center on Pleasant Street in Malden. To learn more about the services offered at this new location, please visit the new location page on our website. For more information about our new test centers, please visit our previous blog post.
Our IMPACT, EPIC, and Workforce Development programs are busy closing out their summer of online learning classes for students throughout the Commonwealth, including BPS summer school and Pre-ETS programming. As schools re-opening in the next month, stay tuned for future updates on their plans for engaging students with disabilities in the upcoming year.
