RRCI youth group focuses on ages 5- 24. We strive to give youth the tools to empower themselves and create lasting positive relationships. We do this by providing them opportunities and activities that establish job training, advocacy, and social skills.
Transitions Advocacy Program (TAPs)
Students Ages 13-21 (grades 7th - 12th)
(Student needs to have a disability and be enrolled in an educational school - middle, high, or post-high)
These courses encompass a wide range of independent living skills including but not limited to:
Education on Various Specific Disabilities
These classes promote self-advocacy and inclusion for all students into both the classroom and the community at large. Youth will gain the skills and confidence necessary to become active participants in designing their own futures.
These courses actively build the mindset and skills necessary for students to become self-advocates in a variety of settings (including their IEP meetings).
Lessons engage students in active, multimodal learning using media, games, books, hands-on activities, class discussion, and group/teamwork.
Students can take the courses as many times as they would like.
RRCI offers weekly youth activities at no cost for youth ages: 5-10, 11-16, and 16-24.
This is a great way to help those with disabilities develop relationships with their peers, learn to be more independent, and gain access to community resources or supports.
