Amplify Life Summer WORKS!

A Pre-vocational Transition Camp!

July  20, 2020 - August 7, 2020

10:00 am - 1:45 pm daily

COST: Free to qualified participants

As we near young adulthood, we all reach a time in life where we begin to think about our future. What does life beyond high school look like? Can I or should I attend college? Will I be able to get a job? What kind of job is right for me? Most of us come to a crossroad where we begin to contemplate the future. This can be perplexing for anyone. However, to someone with a disability, these questions may not easily be answered. Times of transition can be confusing, and for a parent of a special needs child, this opportunity does not even seem within reach to the individual or the family who loves them. Amplify Life WORKS! is centered around the concept of allowing the individual and their family to envision a typical life. The heart of the program focuses on making this vision a reality.

 

How do I apply?

Simply, call or email luis at Luis@amplifylife.org (775) 560-9389 for further details and if your child qualifies. You will receive several forms that need to be filled out, signed and sent back to him. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we will be hosting this program online utilizing our zoom platform.
