We wanted to share that our daughter expressed how much the LIFE Program experience meant to her this summer. It was definitely life-changing. We have seen a marked increase in her independence and self-confidence. The LIFE staff has done a remarkable job of helping families like ours navigate this journey towards adulthood.

Approximately 1000 students in over 41 schools across our region partake in our vibrant LIFE Program where students are learning to live self–directed lives. Youth learn how to self-advocate, use their interests to find a successful career path, employment skills, conflict resolution, and stress management, as well as budgeting and banking.
