LEAP

Life-skills Extended Assistance Program (LEAP)

Students interested in attending YES I, YES II, or Bridge, but would like more practice with personal independence and lifeskills training are encouraged to take the LEAP! 

This week-long experience provides students who need support in learning job skills with the opportunity to gain more exposure to personal independence and develop lifeskill techniques.

Students will focus on work readiness skills to help increase their sense of self-awareness and confidence and practice O&M, social, and communication skills.
