Me Too! Club is a new programme of MINDS planned to enhance the social integration of people with intellectual disabilities (PWIDs) through leisure activities and befriending activities. It is best suited for PWIDs who cannot participate in community-based services due to health reasons and/or other reasons or would prefer a less intensive programme. Me Too!

Activities include weekly leisure/enrichment activities, monthly outings, and home visits for befriending the clients.

For adhoc volunteers:
- Join Me Too! Club weekday activities at least once a month. Each activity spans for 2-3 hours in the afternoons on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

- Plan and/or execute activities for adults with intellectual disabilities i.e. art and craft, sports, gardening, bowling, swimming, etc.

- Attend volunteer case reviews once every 3 months, to discuss about the progress of clients and how to better support them
