As you know, parents of teens with disabilities tend to be anxious about what will happen once high school ends.
Project Independence provides free workshops to help parents who have children with disabilities learn about options for their children once they leave high school. The project also trains youth from ages 14-21 about their options after high school.
A disability should not hamper a person to live their life to the fullest. We share with participants how to obtain employment in the community, assist in applying for college and vocational school, as well as support with life skills. Statistics shows that people with disabilities earn about two-thirds of the median earnings of people without disabilities. They are less likely to attend higher learning, and more likely to live below the poverty line. Project Independence wants to change that.
There will be 2 strands of workshops: One for parents and one for youth. It will be for 5 Thursdays starting October 11th ending November 8th, and a college tour on Saturday, November 3rd. The time of the workshops will be 6:00 – 6:30 for dinner, and 6:30 – 8:30 for training. Here is a link about the project.
