ACES: Online community for staying

Active, Connected, Engaged and Stimulated  

ACES has been developed by a group of Recreation Therapy students from Concordia University under the supervision of Recreotherapy in response to the significant social isolation and lack of stimulation many people are experiences due to the COVID-19 restrictions. The purpose of the project is to create an online community and offer free online sessions for individuals of all ages and abilities, as part of the pilot project.

This summer, we are offering paid 1:1 recreational therapy services with our contractors (sliding scale available, details below), as well as free online group sessions (depending on COVID guidelines, we might organise outdoor sessions too) that would help keep you moving, learning, creating, connecting and recharging from home. 1:1 session activities will be personalized and based on your needs, interests and strengths in order to meet your goals, improve your overall well-being and have fun!

Sliding Scale Guidelines:

The ACES Summer Program will employ a sliding scale fee to adapt to your financial situation and needs for a limited number of participants. This pricing is available for 1:1 online sessions only:

  • Full price ($30/h)- This is the actual cost of the program. By paying full price, you are acknowledging your relative economic privilege in this world and can help make this program more accessible for others.

  • 50% discount ($15/h) - This price is for those who are able to meet their basic needs but have little-to-no expendable income. Paying for this program may qualify as a sacrifice but it would not create hardship. This is available for up to 3 participants.

  • Pay-What-You-Can ($0-$15) - This price is available for those who struggle to meet basic needs and paying for this program would create significant hardship. This is available for up to 3 new participants.
