Planning for the future and making the transition from full time student to adult life can be both exciting and overwhelming for families.

Areas to consider include:

Education, Job Training, and Employment Opportunities

Young Adult Mentoring Group
This group will meet weekly in the local community under the direction and guidance of an adult mentor to address areas that many 18-25-year-olds face as they transition from high school into adulthood. Areas of focus will be identified by the group members and may include career planning and educational pursuits, travel training assistance, money management, nutrition, health and fitness and social skills development. This group is limited to seven participants per eight-week session.

Family Support Group
In this facilitated group, families are invited to share experiences, stresses and emotional challenges that present as individuals transition to adulthood. The group will also discuss the various areas of transition planning and focus on encouraging individual growth, development and independence.
