Moving Your Life Beyond Graduation
In the year 2012 more than ever before, young people leaving high school can belong and contribute to community life. Growing numbers of students are teaching us new ways to think about their lives and the positive futures they imagine for them-selves. Limited service options have spurred students and their families to focus on their capacities and find new opportunities in their communities. Hear about processes others have used to become employed in real jobs, run their own micro-businesses, volunteer in valued roles...how to participate in civic, associational and neighborhood life.
Beyond Graduation is a project of Family Link along with the Association for Community Living and Boulder Valley School District. It includes a set of youth-centered tools de-signed to help young people who are neuro-diverse and supported through IEPs, plan more effectively as they face these important decision and changes. Ideally planning should start in middle school to make sure choices in high school align to your student’s goals.
