What is Adapted Needs Institute?

Adapted Needs Institute

Adapted Needs Institute is a program that enables young adults with special needs to more fully enjoy the institute experience through the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Volunteers will pair up with a buddy at Institute, engage in conversation, share insights, and serve in whatever way their friends need to have the best experience possible and learn about Jesus Christ together!

Adapted Needs Institute meets at many locations, click on the 'Get Involved' tab to view a list!
