The 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.
