Bridge to College

Bridge to College is a FREE program offered by UMKC’s Propel Program that prepares high school students and young adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities to successfully transition to college or employment. Students meet weekly for two hours during the spring semester on the University of Missouri-Kansas City campus. Students get an inside look at college life while they make new friends, explore their interests and discover their goals for life after high school.

Students will learn to:

• Advocate for their disability needs effectively.
• Get and keep a job.
• Budget their money.
• Develop and practice skills for building healthy relationships with their peers

Classes: Weekly classes Jan 22-Apr 22, 2019, 4-6 pm, on Tues or Thurs.
