Moving Forward Program
Sometimes, the transition from high school to adulthood can be tough. The expectations and pressures of the adult world may feel overwhelming at times, however, this transition can also be a time of excitement and possibility if you are prepared and have the right supports.
Moving Forward is a 10-week group program offered through Community Services for young adults (ages 18 – 25 with an LD and/or ADHD diagnosis) aimed at helping to ease the adjustment to the adult world. Whether you are working towards post-secondary education, employment, or struggling to find your direction, this group will provide you with the opportunity to identify and explore your next steps while also creating connections with peers who are in a similar stage of life.
We welcome alumni to come back to Foothills Academy and share their knowledge and experiences with students at the school. Some of the opportunities for alumni include:
Inside Out Conference
Career / Post-Secondary Fairs
CALM / Learning Strategies class presentations
Giving Back to Foothills Academy
We hope that as you go through life you will remember Foothills Academy and consider donating your time or your money to ensure that other children with Learning Disabilities will be able to benefit from the experience of attending this school. There are many ways to donate, volunteer or attend Foothills Academy events.
Keep in touch! We love to hear from our alumni and know how you are doing. Fill out our Alumni Update form and keep us up to date.
