The ADVANCE Program is a non-profit comprehensive training organization focused on supporting young adults with social and learning differences toward a path of social and economic independence. Our immersive training plan places our students in real-world situations accompanied by qualified professionals to train, observe, and assist as the student achieves higher levels of personal independence. ADVANCE includes training and oversight in the key areas of independent living skills, career training, lifestyle fitness, as well as secondary education tutoring, and support. All students enjoy access to our unique QUEST social adventure and integration program, an opportunity to expand their interests and social skills as they experience the city.
ADVANCE offers psychological counseling, social and employment coaching, and weekly goal-oriented advising, each led by passionate, experienced professionals. We are committed to empowering young adults to self-advocate and determine their life’s course in ways that will be beneficial to themselves and the community.
