Our Youth and transition services happen year round! Not only can students participate in our REAL program, but there are also two other ways to get involved and receive training:
Ready Set Go Summer Camp is a yearly summer camp that happens every year at our Tucson location. It is when a group of high schoolers attend classes at our training center, while also living offsite in an apartment of their own. The premise of this program is provide the campers with the experience of living on their own, and doing things every other college student has to do – laundry, cooking, taking classes, etc.
Students get to experience working at a job in a career field they are interested in, participating in the National Federation of the Blind conference as well as doing all sorts of fun camp things like rock climbing and airsofting.
After summer is over and school is our, we also have over
Steppin’ Out Program, which is a residential program designed for students who have completed their senior year in high school and who are entering college or who want to enter the work force. The students in this program range in ages from 18 to 22, and experience living independently first hand. Onsite staff are available for follow up instruction and support to assist in practical application of skills learned during the day.
