During the program, participants will learn life skills that encourage independent living such as:
  • Directing their own attendant services
  • Taking public transportation
  • Managing money
  • Grocery shopping
  • Meal preparation
Information sessions cover topics such as:
  • Accessible housing options
  • Recreational opportunities
  • Advocacy skills

Youth that apply to the program are invited for an interview as part of the selection process. Enrolment is limited to 12 ErinoakKids clients.

Participants in the program must be:
  • 16-19 years of age
  • Motivated to attend
  • Able to set personal goals around living on their own, pursuing post-secondary education, and/or working/volunteering
Participants will be encouraged to make their own choices and experience the natural result of their decisions in a safe and supportive environment.
