The Neighborhood Experiences Project provides young adults, (ages 16 to 20) with developmental disabilities the support they need to take advantage of opportunities in their own community. Participants engage in at least 4-5 volunteer and/or work experiences throughout the summer that help them achieve personal and career goals. At the end of the summer, each individual works with their staff partner to create a professional portfolio and resume showcasing his or her accomplishments. Throughout the school year individuals are attending employment workshops, presentations, and volunteering in community service projects.
