Through a series of classes students learn various life skills that will help them become closer to independence. Life skills classes include, but not limited to, money & budgeting, shopping wisely, cooking, cleaning, relationships, dating, hygiene, navigating the community, pre-driver’s ed., and any others that the students and their families feel are needed.
With the RISE program, individuals are able to continue exploring various career interests and potential volunteering experiences. Through career interest inventories, conversations, OhioMeansJobs.com, and on site tours and job shadowing students can experience and explore various job opportunities that are of interest to them with the Transition Specialist assisting them along the way.
