Our Transition Boost Program is an innovative initiative designed to empower adults with disabilities who have completed a secondary education program. Our program provides comprehensive training in community participation, independent living skills, and career development. Our program focuses on practical skills such as retail, packaging, customer service, basic cooking, hospitality, computer, office, and housekeeping/cleaning skills. This is achieved through classroom instruction, hands-on activities, and community-based partnerships.
