What We Do

We focus on meeting the needs of students with IEPs, 504s, and learning disabilities. We also support students managing mental health conditions. 

We offer a variety of FREE programs that help students and families explore options from colleges to alternative learning programs, to gap years, apprenticeships, and services.

Throughout the year, we also host presentations by experts to help make the transition from school to young adulthood less stressful.

Our programs are designed for students, families, educators, service providers and advocates.
