Our customized transition program for 18- to 21-year olds is centered around meeting the needs and goals of every student to become work-ready adults. All students are taught the necessary skills to navigate the real world. Our caring staff work to develop self-reliant individuals by connecting them with local businesses and organizations to help support their transition to independence.

Students Learn Skills

Every student has a personalized learning plan. They learn skills like time management, budgeting, laundry, meal planning and prep, navigating local transportation, shopping, etc.

Students receive on-the-job training, exposure to different working environments, job coach assistance, and classes on resume writing and interviewing.
