The $20,000 generously donated by STARS Partner The Charro Foundation will help us deliver a Pre-Vocational Learning Project to our Day Training For Adults (DTA) participants.
For recent high school graduates with developmental disabilities, DTA serves as their next step after they can no longer benefit from a school district’s special education curriculum. With this generous grant, the Pre-Vocational Learning Project will create an additional learning opportunity within the current DTA curriculum to educate participants on how to explore the various employment options available to them.
Participants in this project will have the opportunity to learn how to identify and determine their vocational interests. This program, in conjunction with the current DTA curriculum, will help participants continue to foster individual growth, confidence and community integration.
