The Y’s “Bridge to College and Career Success” program supports the youth in our community, ages 16-24, with disabilities through every step of achieving their college and career goals.
At the start of the program, participants construct a “college and career blueprint” which is their personalized, comprehensive roadmap to education and career success, and independent and financially stable adult living. Specific components of this year-round, 5-day per week program include: daily basic academic skills instruction, weekly college readiness, work-readiness, and life-skills workshops.
Youth who are high school dropouts work toward achieving their GEDs, while youth who are high school graduates work to bring basic academic skills to post-secondary standards. High school youth also have opportunities to engage with career advisors on weekends and evenings discussing college and career plans, applying for scholarships, internships, and financial planning.
The program is free of charge to qualified youth.
