What is our online day programming?

As we continue to navigate solutions during this Covid-19 pandemic, one of Communitas’ efforts is to concentrate on continuity of program operations moving forward. While we are unable to provide site-based programming, we have a solution via online day programming.


Communitas will offer online day programming learning lessons via the online meeting interface Zoom. Program participants will be able to engage in organized daily programs and activities; including morning and afternoon meetings, fitness, social skills, and the continuation of developing life skills.

Lessons will be open to all in program and accessible by email invitation. Participants do not need an account to be in a Zoom session; recipients are able to join Zoom lobbies by opening an active link that will be provided in advance.

If you are interested in Zoom sessions, contact your program participant’s Day Program Director. Invitations to these sessions will be sent privately via email.

What is Zoom?

The online meeting space Zoom is accessible through computer, smartphone or tablet. All you need is a microphone and camera on your device for instructors and others in the session to be able to see and hear the person. You do not need a camera or microphone to participate. No matter what the technology, participants can still engage through typing, hearing and viewing respectively.
                 

How can I use this service?

Each program will have a Zoom account. Communitas instructors will be able to schedule and live-stream lessons/activites for individuals to actively participate in. Each week, a schedule will be e-mailed in advance. Links to join these programs will be sent via email alongside the schedule directly and privately. Everyday we intend to have two to three lessons/activities per program.

Our services are essential services. As such, we have a commitment and responsibility to be open and available, especially at times of crisis and great need. Our work is essential, and our commitment is to do it in the safest, most effective way possible.

To best prepare, please contact your site’s Program Director if you are interested in these lessons. For any questions, please contact Communitas Day Services Director, Neil Wyatt, at . Thank you all for your continued support and patience!
