Open House 2017
The Career & Community Studies (CCS) program at Kent State University is holding its annual Workshop/Open House on Saturday, October 7 from 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. CCS is a college-based, tuition, non-degree program to prepare students with intellectual and developmental disabilities and autism (ages 18-26) for adult life through academic pursuits, peer socialization, and career discovery and preparation. The program integrates inclusive classes, a typical college experience, and a transition curriculum to assist students in achieving adult roles and a quality of life in a community of their choice.
At this informational workshop, parents, teachers, service providers, family and community members will learn in depth about the CCS program and all it offers, as well as, information on how to help your student get ready for adult life after high school. Students (10th grade and up) will attend a separate workshop where they will meet CCS faculty and staff, current CCS students, and peer mentors. They will learn about CCS, how college is different from high school, and what they need to do to get ready for adult life. Weather permitting students will take a campus tour.
