Aktion Club was created for adults with special needs through Kiwanis
International and is made up of members enrolled in the Creating
Successful Learners program which is a part of Surry’s Adult Basic Education (ABE) program.
The program is designed specifically for adults with developmental
disabilities and autism. The focus of these classes is to improve the
individual’s independence by acquiring necessary basic life skills from
math and reading to job development.
