S.T.A.R. Program - Supporting Transitions to Adult Responsibilities

Session 2 focuses on work experiences through volunteer opportunities. $500
We are excited to share details of a new Amicus program for young adults ages 18 - 23 with ADHD and/ or learning disabilities. To support the youth in this age range and their families with their transition to adulthood, this summer, we are launching the S.T.A.R. Program - Supporting Transitions to Adult Responsibilities!
This program is designed to support young adults in the Learning Disability and ADHD community to develop the skills and confidence needed to achieve independence. The S.T.A.R. Program supports the development of these skills by providing volunteer opportunities to gain workplace experience, build fundamental life skills like budgeting and how to rent their first home after they move out and develop general employment skills.
