Upward and Onward
Upward and Onward is a transitional program for students (interns) in their final year of high school. The programs goal is to prepare students to be successful in their home, navigating the community and within the workplace. Upward and Onward is a one-year transition program that will help students gain skills in the areas of life skills, daily-living skills, self-advocacy skills and so much more. Throughout the school year, the interns obtain their food handlers card, learn how to ride Valley Metro Public Transportation, complete workplace trainings through Phoenix Public Library at the Ocotillo Branch, register to vote, and obtain their State ID's, just to name a few of their experiences. Upward and Onward also works closely with Special Olympics Arizona to participate in unfinished experiences within the community.
