Kaleidoscope Community Adult Program Opens August 20
Written by Abigail Guerdat, Communications & Grants Associate at Easterseals Bay Area
We all have a calling. For some of us, it may be cooking, dancing, or coding. For others, it’s repairing jet engines, delivering babies, or measuring seismic waves. Although we all work towards the common good of our society, there are some individuals with a calling to lead and mentor. These are the people who see the infinite possibilities in their mentees and strive to help them reach their fullest potential.
If this sounds like you, then you may have something in common with my friend and colleague at Easterseals Bay Area, Zach Lupton. Zach Lupton has been working at Easterseals Bay Area since September 2003. He has also been Easterseals Bay Area’s top fundraiser four years in a row and is now the program manager of our newly formed Kaleidoscope Community Adult Program (KCAP), opening this August.
The new Kaleidoscope Community Adult Program will address a growing need in our community to provide support and opportunities for adults with special needs. Just like anyone, these individuals want to contribute to society by having meaningful careers, pursuing their passions, making friends in their communities, and living independently. With KCAP opening this month, Zach and his team are helping these individuals do just that.
I met up with Zach to see what he loves most about his work and how he got started.
