Events: Transition into adulthood with a little help from these friends
Taking the leap into real adulthood isn’t easy for anyone. It’s nice to know there’s help out there for students and families who might really need guidance in making the transition.
This week, Exceptional Education students and families have two chances to get information on services and agencies that can help in the move to independent and adult living. They can learn more about how to manage finances, find a job, live on their own and go to school independently. They can also connect with community groups and non-profits that can help along the way.
It’s really beautiful when you think about it: everyone comes together to help these exceptional students leave high school ready to live, work and participate fully in their communities.
Both events are open to the public.
