Welcome to FUTURE!

The FUTURE Postsecondary Education Program is a two- or three-year course of study empowering students to achieve gainful employment in the community.

FUTURE is a comprehensive and inclusive program that helps young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities make a successful transition from high school to adult life. During the two- to three-year program, we provide students with specially designed FUTURE classes, the opportunity to audit undergraduate courses, and on or off campus internships. Also available is career and clinical counseling to help develop their academic, vocational, social, and decision-making skills. Upon successful completion of the program, students receive a vocational certificate.
