Resource Program at the Transition Center

This program is located at 220 S. Michigan Avenue in downtown Big Rapids.  The program is a post high school special education program for young adults ages 18-26.  The focus of this program is working on independence.  Students in this program may have recently begun living on their own or have the desire to live on their own/share a home and need extra time beyond their high school experience to work on money management and practice getting around the community.  Students who are their own guardians as well as those students who have guardians appointed to them work in conjunction with community agencies in transitioning into the community and accessing community resources.  Students may be involved up to 50 percent of their day in Transition Community Living Experiences (TCLE) with the remainder of their day involving activities individually designed for their future living experiences.
