Nest Academy is filling a much-needed void in the special needs community for adults with complex needs. While many programs support adults with disabilities who 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.

Nest Academy RVA offers educational classes, art, music, and adapted community outreach opportunities in a fun, safe and nurturing environment. We provide meaningful socialization opportunities that our students may not have otherwise, due to their complex needs.

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!    *Credit Hours Available for High School Students
