Programs

DSGO wants to ensure that our programming is as beneficial as possible to our members. Our programs are split up by age so that individuals are meeting milestones together and sharing in the same experiences. All activities will be relevant, appropriate, and will incorporate the Pillars of Programming to allow for a meaningful life-long learning experience.
