|What is our vision?
The Transition Program is designed to assist individuals in learning new skills and build on existing skills to facilitate growth. It is transitional in nature - we will be working on developing skills needed to explore future options including employment (through Employee Training Program, Workshop, ACCES-VR, or independently), secondary education, Site or Community Based Day Hab, and Volunteer Opportunities.
What kind of activities are available to participants?
The Transition Program offers a wide variety of activities that are both Site and Community Based and focus on individuals' specific interests. In addition to community outings and non-paid work experience (at locations such as Meals on Wheels, ABVI Goodwill, Salvation Army, Red Cross, YMCA, Tinker Park and U of R), we will access community based classes such as art, music, ceramics, photography and cooking. We also offer classes in: ADL skills to increase independence, community safety, job readiness skills, resume building, socialization/conflict resolution, self advocacy and many more based on individuals interests!
