Goodwill of Southeastern Wisconsin “On the Move” is a weekend recreation program for persons with disabilities who want to put a little more ‘kick’ in their weekends. We offer three different types of leisure opportunities (called tracks) for people to choose from:

1. Full Day Outings, which consist of 6 to 8 hour activities like sporting events, festivals, museums and tours. Full Day Outings are active and require independence with personal care.
2. Half Day Outings, which consist of 3 to 4 hour activities like plays, smaller festivals and museums and seated tours. Half Day Outings are slower paced and appropriate for participants who need some help with personal care.
3. Workshops, which consist of art, music and movement activities. Workshops are the slowest paced and appropriate for participants who need some help with personal care.

For more information, including setting up a visit or getting more information on programs, please call Goodwill “On the Move” coordinator, at (262) 970-6042 or send e-mail to: onthemove@goodwillsew.com. Find more information, including application forms and the current calendar of events at their website.
