ASCENT (Advocacy, Social Skills, Career Exploration, Networking and Transitions) is an afternoon program that empowers young people with developmental disabilities to overcome barriers to post-secondary employment, independence and individual success. Serving teens and young adults, from age 16 to age 30, ASCENT helps young participants transition to independent living and post-secondary education and employment. Young people enrolled in ASCENT meet up to four afternoons each week to work on concrete life skills, such as cooking, self-care, shopping and personal finance, that prepare them to be more independent in their adult lives. Each instructional module is supported by immersive community experiences that allow young adults to practice specific life skills in community settings.
Doing lesson plans for children, working one and on with children who may not be as developed, a lot of independent work
