The L.I.F.E. Program provides a comprehensive experience to prepare young adults for employment and independence after high school. The unemployment rate for young adults with disabilities is close to 90%, but the skills our students gain in the L.I.F.E. Program prepares them to defy those odds. Our proudest moments are when students exit the L.I.F.E. Program because they have secured full-time employment, often with benefits.
However, success may be defined differently based on students’ and families’ personal goals, desires and expectations. Upon admission to the L.I.F.E. Program, each student completes a personalized learning plan with L.I.F.E. Program staff that outlines individual goals and benchmarks needed to achieve those goals.
