Young Adult Project

The Young Adult Project is not classroom-based, but rather, is a coordinated set of community-based activities that is student-led with the guidance of a teacher consultant and/or a teacher assistant.

The activities are geared toward transitioning the student towards their post-secondary vision and goals.

  • We assist each student in building bridges of support and connecting them to a variety of supports depending on individual needs- including but not limited to: Michigan Rehabilitative Services (MRS), Community Supports and Treatment Services (CSTS), Community Mental Health (CMH), and community transportation, friends and family.
  • The young adult agrees to engage in adult problem-solving and adult scheduling. The young adult can negotiate their own schedule and transportation with a level of independence.

The Young Adult develops a plan that includes:

  • Sustainable resources
  • Increased self-advocacy within the adult systems
  • Seamless transition to post-school adult services
  • Involvement in the community, recreation, leisure and adult daily living
  • Participation in work (competitive employment) or making progress toward sustainable work settings
  • Consideration of independent living situations, with support as needed
  • Ongoing work towards a young adult’s maximum potential for independence in their community
  • Involvement in meaningful and productive activities for themselves and/or their community
