Congratulations to Marques and Brian, residents of one of our homes in Penn Yan, on their graduation from the D.R.I.V.E. program at Keuka College.
The D.R.I.V.E. Program (Diversity, Responsibility, Inclusion, Vision, and Experiential Learning) has been recognized by the New York State Department of Education and Think College as an effective practice in the transition programming for young adults with intellectual disabilities.
We are so lucky to have the program so close at Keuka College, where college students serve as peer mentors to D.R.I.V.E. students. They assist students in attending college classes and to assimilate into campus life. The goal for D.R.I.V.E. students is to obtain meaningful employment upon graduation from the program. We love to see these successful programs allow for the growth and prosperity of our clients. We are so proud and delighted for Marques and Brian. Congratulations, guys!
