The Post-Secondary Community Immersion Program is a 100% community based post-secondary program for young adults, ages 18-22. The program teaches lifeskills such as travel training, job readiness, cooking and social skills in an inclusive and age – appropriate environment.
There are many examples of the power and impact of this program. This year:
- One student spoke at the TASH National Conference for teachers and advocates of people with disabilities
- One student served on the ICC board at West Valley College as president of the Chess Club
- Students raised money by selling baked goods and mason jar cookies.Students continue to be creative to raise additional funds to supplement the program: raising over $1,000 during their first annual Hoop-a-Thon; one student using her artistic abilities to create cards to sell to family and friends, passing on 20% of her earnings to the program.
The new and improved Post Secondary Bistro continues its tradition of creative, delicious food, putting together a tour of local cuisine - from cobb salad, mac and cheese and shepherd's pie - planning menus and budgets, shopping, and prepping/serving.
