Our Programs


YiPPE (Youth in Partnership with Parents for Empowerment)

Each year, up to 40 youth with disabilities aged 14 to 21 and one or more of their family members meet for 5 sessions spread out over a school year.  Each session runs from 5:00 to 8:30 pm Friday night and 8 am to 3 pm on Saturday.   Parents and youth participate in parallel programs to receive information in their learning styles.  Parents hear from more speakers while youth do more hands-on activities and role playing.  Shared activities occur each weekend.

"Join the YiPPE program and you can be just like me- having a lot more confidence, more friends and happy going to work."  Justin, 2014 Youth Participant
