About M.A.I.L.

 

about

We are a parent run organization whose focus is to provide meaningful activities for special needs individuals over the age of 16. We have been a non-profit organization since 1992. M.A.I.L. members are residents of Peel Region who are intellectually challenged. We are governed by a Board of Directors consisting of 9 volunteer members, and our growing membership now consists of over 50 families.

We provide an opportunity for these very special members of society to learn from our professional staff how to interact with each other and the community while having a great time! Our programs facilitate life-skills training, meal preparation, recreation, arts and crafts and socializing.

Currently, our programs during the fall, winter and spring occur in classrooms of local schools, as well as one school gym for the social class. We are very proud of our programming as it brings much needed activity into the lives of our very special membership giving a sense of belonging and practical education.

Our Programs have been a huge success and greatly enjoyed by all participants. To ensure the continuation of our success and preserve the integrity of our programs, we have constituted guidelines for those wishing to participate in our programs.

Participants of our Programs must:

  • Be an active M.A.I.L. member
  • Be 16 years of age or over
  • Be registered with the acting President

NOTE: For those members who require any of the below, MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY A WORKER;

  • Have behavior management needs;
  • Require a teaching ratio of less than 6 members to 1 staff.
