Life After High School is Full of Possibilities
With the help of New Directions Transitional Program for Young Adults, our students, who previously failed to thrive, are experiencing how to live on their own for the first time in their lives. The program at New Directions is individually tailored to your young adult’s needs. We provide young adults with the opportunity to pursue higher education, vocational goals, and transition into independence.
Our staff members offer on-going counseling, supportive services and mentoring to help students develop independent living skills, manage their emotions, achieve a balance between physical health and fitness, develop financial management skills, get vocational training, continue their academics, maintain an organized environment, establish healthy relationship patterns, and build self-esteem and values. In addition, we provide our students with transportation to school/jobs (within a 5 mile radius), match students with mentor services and organize special events (concerts, sports), family weekends, weekend trips and other organized excursions to provide our young adults with a well-rounded program experience.

Have you put much thought into how your young adult looks for jobs? Does he or she just spend hours looking through classifieds or online postings? Is he or she filling out applications for anything that is available? Or maybe you’re the one doing all of the hunting for them?
