The skills camp addresses critical areas of transition including independent living skills, safety, self-management, and career exploration. The HEELS Summer Intensive will launch July 2019.

  • HEELS UP (Higher Education, Employment, Living Success–University Participant): HEELS UP provides an inclusive, two-year, on-campus living and learning opportunity for college-aged persons with intellectual disabilities. The goal of HEELS UP is to support students to transition to adult life through education, employment, and independence. HEELS UP is planned to launch Fall 2020.
