Alex is about to graduate from high school.
Way to go, Alex!
But Alex is a student with special needs.
He does not qualify for post secondary education,
and employment rates for people with special needs
are very low.
The government programs designed to help kids like Alex.........
and waiting lists for services are thousands long.
Alex and his family could wait years for safe and suitable options.
Where does Alex go all day while his parents work?
Each year, thousands of young adults like Alex...
fall over a cliff into
"The Transition Gap"
No job. No services. No friends. No options.
UNTIL NOW !
is providing community-based opportunities and supports.
We explore and uncover interests and potential,
then connect it to opportunity.
Together we pursue the dignity and hope of economic opportunity and contribution, as opposed to simple handouts.
The formula: small urban farms + peer staff/volunteers
= social progress and collective prosperity
In other words...
We all win!
Get involved. Invest in change.
For young adults just like Alex.
