Career and Community Studies at The College of New Jersey

Yesterday I had the privilege to visit the Career and Community Studies program at The College of New Jersey. The CCS program at TCNJ is a 4 year and mentor based college program that provides people with intellectual and developmental disabilities the opportunity to learn and develop career skills, job skills, living skills, and social skills. After the 4 year program, students are prepared to live independently and enter the working world. It was amazing to see that the CCS program provides an inclusive environment with neuro-typical college students in classroom activities and campus social activities. The Career and Community Studies program at TCNJ is a great program, and I am happy to have made some friends along the way :)! The link is below for more information.
