Studies have shown that individuals with disabilities need successful work experience prior to completion of formal education. Without this experience, most individuals with disabilities remain underemployed for the remainder of their lifetime.
The Launch Program assists youth with disabilities, mental illness and behavioral needs to develop the skills necessary to transition into their new roles in education, employment, and community living. Our 3 tiered system is beneficial in targeting individual needs through supervised skills training and hands-on experience.
Our program is unique in that it partners with local businesses and providers, as well as organizations, such as the Rehabilitative Services Commission (RSC), to provide students with services that are tailored to meet their individual needs for a smoother post-secondary transition.
