Post-Secondary Transition - Community Transition Program

Program Description

This is a pilot program designed to support student’s transition to adult life.  The program is a full time community based program with an emphasis on employment, community inclusion, and life skills that are meaningful and related to the individual needs of each student.   Person-centred planning is used in planning goals and objectives to suit the unique needs of each student.  All students participate in on-going work/volunteer experiences and activities that foster community inclusion and participation. 

Students must:

  • be eligible for CLBC services
  • be able participate in community based program-this is not a centred based program
  • be in their last year of high school (turning 19 between July 1-June 30th)

The goal of this program is for an increased level of independence and participation in community based settings.  Students who complete this program, continue with CLBC with a wide range of support options.

Referral Process

Currently, this is a pilot project and referrals must be submitted to the District Resource Teacher - Secondary Transition. There are parent/student information meetings in the late Fall of each year and application packages are given out at the meeting.  Students are accepted based on meeting criteria and on a first come first served basis.
