Project Possibility is one of the youth and transition service programs provided by INCLUDEnyc. Through this program, they work diligently with disabled young adults, ages 16-26, by providing 1:1 assistance/direct support with their transition out of high school into post-secondary programs. Participants create and put in place a practical plan designed to lead to job training, employment, higher education, or other productive community engagement.
To be more specific, they are able to:
- Help disabled students acquire vocational assessments from school
- Help disabled students develop self-advocacy skills
- Take part in IEP meetings and create transition plans
- Assist disabled students with finding and applying for post-secondary programs, such as high school and college.
- Help families that cater to disabled youth understand diploma and credential options
- Assist disabled students with their applications for ACCES-VR services
- Assist disabled students with applying for OPWDD services
- Help disabled students fight for accommodations in post-secondary programs
