Burlington, NC 27215
We host free and ticketed pop-up events throughout the community; at parks, community centers, schools, and more; for all abilities.
Our mission is to provide a positive environment for individuals of all abilities and their caregivers to learn, connect, and have fun.
Changing lives one opportunity, one encounter at a time.
TECpark is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization where our goal is to change lives one encounter, one opportunity at a time. All donations are tax-deductable.
Within the last decade, there has been growing recognition of the need to meet the challenges of individuals with diverse needs. TECpark is unique and is designed to meet the needs of all abilities by creating an integrated community setting.
TECpark was founded by a couple of parents that found it difficult to find places where both their children, with very different abilities, could be comfortable, have fun, and connect with their peer groups. TECpark is a place where acceptance and fun are a priority; where different is great; and where parents can relate to other caregivers that have children with unique needs. It’s our desire to change lives, one opportunity, one encounter at a time. Our desire is to create an inclusive environment. All are welcome!
Our staff is trained and experienced to work with individuals of all abilities
