Nest Academy is filling a much needed void in the special needs community for adults with complex needs. While there are many programs that support adults with disabilities that are higher functioning, there are little to no programs for those with complex disabilities due to physical and cognitive impairments. Nest students typically require one-on-one assistance for every aspect of daily living and are often medically fragile.
What We Do
We offer educational classes, art, music and field trip opportunities in a fun, safe and nurturing environment. We also provide meaningful socialization opportunities that our students would not otherwise have.
Support the Nest Family
Upcycled Tote Program
Cookies are to Girl Scouts as Totes are to Nest. Nest has developed this Upcycling tote program to:
Engage students in meaningful activities such as collecting, tagging and selling totes
Engage with volunteers in RVA to support the conversion of these feedbags
Offset costs of Nest Programs
Most tote bags can be purchased for just $15.
This is a vital component to helping us accomplish our mission. We believe the best way for our initiatives to be successful is for the community to actively get involved. This is an easy and efficient way of contributing to the great work we do at Nest Academy RVA. Get in touch with any questions about how you can volunteer your time today. We have numerous volunteer positions available with or without special needs experience! Click the volunteer tab above to learn more.
We are looking for those who are passionate to help this community thrive, contact us if that's you!
