Jon’s Testimony: “Things I like about Clubhouse;
I like the somewhat structured social hour that gives us ways to learn about each other's backgrounds. We work side by side with each other, and with staff, on a variety of tasks, such as administrative tasks, social media, or advocacy work. The member to staff balance is such that there is enough for everybody to do.
The number of tasks that we do during the day allows us to go home feeling like we have done something to keep the clubhouse running, and gives us a sense of ownership.”
