Our groundbreaking Brighton Launch Adult Program re-imagines post-secondary education for young adults with intellectual challenges. Through a customized, hands-on skills curriculum, personal coaching, supported work placements and community participation, Launch prepares students for lives of success. Our students gain independent living skills such as cooking, shopping, budgeting, social competencies and digital literacy. Skills for the workplace are taught through external work placements and our internal social enterprise program called Brighton Launch Creations, which manufactures and sells spa products.
We offer both Full-time and Part-time program options from September through the end of June.
An integrated program approach at Brighton Launch ensures that key goals are being addressed in a focused, consistent and synchronized manner across the curriculum, with experienced coach – facilitators who know the young adult very well. Brighton Launch is not a time-limited program. You can enroll for one year or several; you can remain connected to Launch in various ways throughout your life and career.
