Bridging’s mission is to assist school-aged youth with disabilities to step confidently into their adult years by introducing them to meaningful community opportunities, exploring topics connected to healthy adult living and building healthy relationships.
Bridging at CCS partners with Burlington, Colchester, Mt. Mansfield Union, South Burlington and Winooski High Schools.
Working with interns from the UVM School of Social Work and mentors from partner high schools, Bridging Coordinator Emily Anderson guides students through a full academic year organized around four learning modules:
- Career exploration
- Community connection
- Independent living
