Community Living-Grimsby, Lincoln and West Lincoln: Transitional Aged Youth: Preparing for the Future
No matter what your age or life situation, independence is important! The Transitional Aged Youth: Preparing for the Future program focuses on maximizing independence and enabling those with developmental disabilities to participate fully in their community.
Pictured below is Shane (right) with his friends Marcus, Jackie and Katie (left to right). Shane told us he enjoys the program because “every week there are different activities and I get to spend time with my friends.” Shane’s parents shared that he looks forward to the program every week and checks his calendar daily. Without the program, he would not have made many of the friends and relationships he has today.
Participants learn valuable skills such as first aid, goal setting and money management. These valuable skills contribute to the positive development of each of these individuals.
